Google has recently implemented the use of team drives in Google Drive. To create a Team Drive using your OC email address, please follow the steps below.
Set Up a Team Drive
Users wanting to set up a team drive need to submit a ticket to Support Central with the following information:
- Team Drive Name
- Users Needing Access (please supply ID numbers or OC usernames)
- Access Length of Time
Team Drive Settings
For students, the drive name will have an appended semester name to show what semester the team drive is being used. For faculty/staff, the semester does not need to be listed in the team drive name.
The user who submits the ticket will be considered the drive manager and will be given administrative access to the team drive. The drive manager will then be able to edit the access of all the members in the drive.
For students, a team drive will only be able to be open for one semester at a time unless arrangements have been made for extended use. The drive will close on the Friday of finals week of a semester. Any documents needed from the team drive will need to be saved and backed up before that day. Please contact Support Central for any extensions needed.
Faculty/Staff can choose an extended length of time for a team drive.
