This post is a step by step guide on how to auto generate a folder for each student in Google Drive by using auto create folder and file add-ons.
No matter if you are a teacher or school administrator, we all have to manage all the information about our students. If we manage it well, we will be able to have more time to focus on our main tasks which are teaching activities.
There are many options to structure our student’s information, but each student having a unique folder is the best well-structured option - among other options.
The below picture gives us an example of how to structure information of each student and the whole class.
By structuring class and student information like this, we were able to manage its information well.
In a digital transformation decade, we don’t save student’s information in a paper’s document anymore. We also don’t save the information on our local computer.
We save our student’s information on Cloud service, and Google Drive is one of the best services in personal cloud hosting. We all know that Google Drive is easy to access and very easy to use in terms of hosting folders and files.
From here, we know that if we generate a folder for each student in Google Drive, we are able to manage it well and to easily access the information when we need it.
But it takes a long time if we use the normal way to create 05 folders for each student as in the above example.
The step by step guide below will help us to save a ton of time by using a way to auto generate a folder for each student in Google Drive. Let’s start.
Let’s assume that we will now create a folder for each student in Google Drive. Each student will have 05 folders inside as the above example.
See the picture below for more details.
To get this done, we need to use a Google Sheet add-ons named as auto create folders and files. This free add-ons is available on Google Workspace marketplace. Click here to install it now.
Assume that you now have installed the add-on successfully.
From your Google sheet, just input the information for student A as in the image below.
Then, just click on the button as image show below:
Hola, You now have a folder for student A inside your Google Drive as below:
The most important thing is for the next student, for example, student B. You don’t need to set up anything more.
You just change the name of Student A to Student B, then click to the button. The whole folder for student B will be auto generated as for student A.
