Setting Permission:

  • When attaching a Google Drive document to an Edmodo post, you are given the option at the bottom of the Add from Library box to manage the permissions on the document you are sharing.
  • The checkbox will allow you to automatically set the write permissions on the document for anyone receiving the document via the Edmodo post. The receiving user will also have had to associate her/his Edmodo Account with Google Docs.
  • If you do not check the box, Edmodo will set read only permissions for receiving users that have associated their Edmodo Account with Google Docs.
  • It is best to have your students link their Google Drive Accounts immediately, if you plan on using this functionality.
