Team Drive Access via Google Docs Cloud Assignment

Team Drive Access via Google Docs Cloud Assignment

(1)

When creating an assignment using the "Google Cloud Assignment" option, you can select files located in "My Drive".  With the release of Google's Team Drives, teachers should have the ability to select files located in a "Team Drive" in addition to "My Drive".

I am running in to this need now as well! Our Curriculum team is using Team Drive and we have worked with them to migrate to Canvas, but they can't easily embed their curriculum docs because they can't access Team Drive.

I would also love to see integration with Team Drives, as we've got more and more multi-instructor courses.

I agree!  Integration of Team Drives will be crucial moving forward as many of the teachers we are training are starting to move their shared stuff into Team Drives.

Google Team Drives are a fantastic feature which I, like many others, plan to use heavily at work. Access to them will be essential and it should be added to Canvas. Unfortunately, the content in the drives is totally independent of My Drive and unless I am missing something, there is no way to make it show in my personal drive. I even tried to triangulate with a different account without success. I am not sure if the solution lies with Canvas or with Google, but please work on it!

Any news on this? Seems like more of a default thing than a request.

True story! How else can we get the message out?

Our curriculum teams are using Team Drive to develop/organize Google Docs that they are hoping link into Blueprint courses.  Team Drive enables us to keep content together regardless of who is teaching a course from one year to the next and enables us to keep the content if a teacher should leave our district.  The inability to see Team Drive content from inside of Canvas reduces the efficiency we can leverage by using Team Drive.

We are slowly rolling out Team Drives here in Brookline, MA and I just had a Coordinator ask about Team Drive + Canvas integration .....I'm at a loss. How can we fully leverage the power of Team Drives if Canvas does not allow us to select the Team Drive at the top level of our G Suite menu ...... -_______-
