Google Drive App


Hey all, 

I am using the Google Drive app with Schoology but the vast majority of the content from my Google Drive is within a Shared Drive (different then "shared with me") and NOT My Drive. Is there any way to change this?

    Hi Scott, 

    Thank you for reaching out in the Schoology Community!

    The first time you create an assignment using the Google Drive Assignments app, a new folder called Schoology Google Drive Assignments automatically generates at the root level in your associated Google Drive. 

    Are you creating Google Drive Assignments in Schoology and they are being assigned to "Shared with Me" instead of your main drive?

    Hi Nina,

    I think Scott is refering to a section of Google Drive that is called Shared Drives. It is distinct from items in My Drive and Shared with Me sections. But, it is still part of a Google Drive account. Shared Drives do not populate in the Google Drive App in Schoology. I also have copious resources in this type of Google Drive location and cannot access them from within Schoology unless I move them (not easy). An amazing feature update for this App would be the addition of viewing items in the Shared Drives category of Google Drive.

    Yes please, make a way to access Google Shared drives from Schoology! This is so frustrating! When teachers are creating and sharing resources and lesson plans through the Shared drives, we MUST have a way to access these through Schoology in an easy way. "Make a copy" and "Drag and drop" are not efficient long-term solutions!

    Hi Megan,

    Thank you for posting in the Schoology Community.

    The Google Shared Drives are not supported by Schoology at this time. But this is a great idea for a feature idea. I will go ahead and move this post to the Feature Ideas forum for ur development to review this.
