~ Filter E-Mails in Gmail ~

When you share a copy of a Google Doc with your entire class, you will get a separate email notification from your Google Drive account for every student you share to. If you want to stay notified of your shares, but want to keep your inbox free of all of those emails, follow the instructions in the video below.

~ Filter E-Mails in Outlook ~

Select the Settings Icon, and click "View All Outlook Settings."

Select "Rules" and then click "+ Add new rule."

Add a Title for your rule.
Under Add a condition, select "Subject includes" and type in Transfer of ownership

Under Add an action, you may select any option you desire. We recommend creating an Otus folder where all of the notification emails will be filtered to. 

Once you select Save, all incoming emails that have "Transfer of ownership" in the subject (which is what the email notifications say when a student is sharing a document) will follow the new rule! 

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out and let us know!
