  • Access to all those documents that have been already accepted.
  • Access to the documents pending to be accepted.
  • See the documents that have been blocked.

 Please note that the permissions to share a document or folder include an option to name co-owner to another user. In this case, shared documents uses up some storage space .


Nuevo permiso




UADrive allows students to have access to the documents that lecturers and administrative staff share with them.

We are working so that students can have their own space available.

In the meantime, UA offers students the possibility to use GCloud and MSCloud platforms,
as a result of some agreements with Google and Microsoft, so that they can have unlimited storage capacity.

For further information on these services, visit External Services.




Use statistics


You will find here a variety of useful data. Especially, you will view what space percentage you have used.

Please note that those materials shared with you as a co-owner do consume part of your storage space.


Estadísticas de uso




Moving teaching materials from the Virtual Campus to UADrive is very easy. The function Importar allows you to move all the materials of one subject (maintaining the same directories it used to have previously) to a folder in UADrive.


  Importar materiales


 Once the import process is performed, you will have a folder available in My space stating the academic year and the subject where the materials come from.


Materiales traspasados desde Campus Virtual


 You will only have to access the folder, select its content and Publish as teaching material in the present academic year.


How does the Sessions tool work?



… If I am a user of Sessions, what happens with the materials linked from there?

If you use 'Sessions' from the Virtual Campus, they will be working the same way. Also, the materials linked from your sessions will be still there and therefore, you do not need to worry about anything.


Can I link any file in UAdrive from a Session?

Every time you upload a file, you need to state if you want to use it in a Session.


  Nuevo archivo


Anyway, you can modify the properties of any file in UADrive at any time so that you can link them from a Session. To do this, you only have to click the right mouse button on the material and click on the edit option. 


  Modificar archivo


A window to allow you to edit/modify a file will be open.


Editar archivo


Then, you will have to activate the Teaching material option in the next screen.


Activar uso para Sesiones



Will I see the files I upload differently from now on in the Sessions?

When you link a document from a Session, all the files you have will be displayed on the list of materials, both the old and those you have uploaded to UAdrive. the latter will be distinguished by a text between bracket stating "UADRIVE".

  Ver materiales en sesiones



Once you have linked it, you will see the same label within your session.


  Ver material dentro de una sesión



Can I modify the material that I have already linked from one session?

Old materials cannot be modified. In this case you should upload the material again and link it from the section of the corresponding session.
