I shared a file with my Counselor and I don't see it in my Student Portal Files Tab

student file upload

Sharing a file from Google Drive is not the same as uploading a file to your Student Portal

The files that you see in your Files Tab are files that are in a specific student folder, in your Counselor's Google Drive. When you (right click) share a document, it doesn't go into your specific student folder, and that is why it doesn't show up in your Files Tab. 

 

How do I avoid this? Upload directly from your Student Portal > Files Tab > Navigation Button > Import from Google or Upload File (from your hard drive). See below:
