Save CODAP Work on Google Drive

Save to Google Drive

You can save a CODAP file using several methods. The following gives instruction on how to save a CODAP file using Google Drive.

  • Click on the ≡ menu. Select “Save…”
  • A prompt will appear. Select the “Google Drive” tab.
  • Follow the Google Drive dialog (log in to your Google account if you are not already logged in). You can now save CODAP files (with a .codap extension) to Google Drive. Select the Drive folder/subfolder you would like to save to by clicking on the arrows/folder names in the middle of the saving dialog (see image below)Note: In order for Google Drive to connect to CODAP, you must have enabled the proper permissions.
  • Once you've saved your CODAP document to Google Drive, any further updates you make will be automatically saved (make sure you see "All changes saved to Google Drive" written at the top of the CODAP file before closing it--if you see a red box with "Unsaved" written in it, the document, or changes to it, have not been saved to Google Drive). You do not need to follow the saving steps listed above again.

Switch between multiple Google accounts

If you have multiple Google accounts, when CODAP prompts you to log in to Google, you can select the specific account you want to save to. If you are already logged in to at least one Google account, and want to save to a different account, click on "Select Different Google Account" at the bottom of the saving dialog (see image above), select/log in to the account you wish to save to, and then click "Save."

Important note on using multiple Google accounts to edit a CODAP document:

Like with Google docs, you can change permissions for a CODAP document saved in Google Drive to give specific people/accounts (or anyone with the link) edit access, if you wish. To change permissions, go to Google Drive, find the CODAP document, right click or control click on the name/icon for the document, and then select "Share." Note that unlike Google docs, only one person/account at a time should edit a CODAP document saved in Google Drive. If multiple people/accounts try to edit at the same time, not all of the changes will be saved. If you wish to edit a CODAP document from multiple Google accounts, make sure only one account at a time has the document open.
