Better Google Drive Integration

Follow

I'm glad that you have Google Drive integration, however, attaching a document from Drive to an assignment is super cumbersome. There is no way to search within your app, and for the life of me, I haven't figured out how the docs are ordered within your app window. Secondly, I might find the doc and put it in my assignment, but if I forgot to make the document viewable, then students can't open the doc in their drive account to make a copy of it.

    Doesn't clicking on the assignment title open it up in a separate Google Drive window to allow for such edits and permissions?

    As far as I've been able to figure out, it opens in something like a "google doc viewer" which doesn't allow for anything. The work around is would be me making the document available for "anybody with the link" and then providing the link. It works, but as I stated, I would have to remember to change the permissions before posting it to Schoology.

    I agree. A colleague and I were trying to figure out how Google Drive organization translates into the Schoology App. We could not find a logical system. Is there a way to allow users to sort/organize the way their Drive appears within the app in Schoology?

    More schools are adopting chromebooks.  Please re-make the google drive integration so that it is easier

    I agree!!  We really need a search bar when trying to add a google doc to an assigment or materials.  My Google drive is not organized in a way that the things that i need show up at the beginning of your list.  I can't figure out how those documents end up being first in the list either. It would take me 20 minutes to add a Google doc this way.  I would LOVE to be able to search my docs.
