FAQs

    Can I log into my Google account and Microsoft account so that I can access files from both?

    Yes, you can. Once you have connected your providers, you use any of them to log in to TileAcademy and access files from the others. For example, you can log in with your Microsoft account and access files from Microsoft OneDrive and Google Drive – or you could even log in with your organisation account and access files from both Microsoft and Google.

    • Private – The collection is not shared and you are the only person that can view and edit it.
