So I'm a teacher and I want documents that students share with me (that will always include something like "Block 1--M. Smith--Research Paper") to be filtered into a Block 1 folder.

Anyone knows if this is possible?

Short answer

Google documents doesn't include a feature like Gmail filters that automatically process incoming messages, but it could be extended through add-ons and Google Apps Script.


Google Apps for Education includes Google Classroom which help teachers to manage assignments and include features to help teachers to manage files submitted by students.
