Organize Docs in Sidebar

Many organizations share a Workspace and make a Folder for each team or department. But what about the info used by everyone, like company-wide documents or policies and procedures?

Add a Doc to a Space or Folder to display it next to any List in that location. After you add a Doc to your Sidebar you can click and drag to move it to any location in your Workspace.
