Re: Google Team Drives

Hi, Scott.  Do you now have any information regarding Google Team Drive integration to PowerSchool Learning?  I'm sitting around a leadership meeting right now where this lack of functionality from PowerSchool Learning is being illustrated as a major flaw in our school's adoption and workflow.

 

We need to be able to draw from enrolled Google Team Drives for assignments and courses in addition to personal My Drive folders.

 

Help!  We REALLY need this functionality!

Re: Google Team Drives

Just wanted to add my support for moving this up in the development calendar. I've had whole departments at my school put the brakes on migrating to Google Team Drives because Team Drives are not integrated into PS Learning. Please add this soon.

Thanks so much!

Re: Google Team Drives

Hi

 

Our schools have the same requirement, and we would love PSL dev teams taking a look at making this work.

 

Meantime as a workaround, our users can use Embed The Web:

1. Open a file in Google Team Drive

2. Choose File > Publish to the web...

3. Click on 'Embed' and copy the embed code

4. In PSL Add Content Block > Embed the Web

5. Paste the embed code

 

It's a bit clunky, but seems to work.

 

HTH,

martinm

We're running into many challenges with content that's stored on Team Drive. There are several workarounds that help us, but there's no good solution at the moment.

 

I'd like to also plug a feature request to update the file picker for google drive. This post details the issue with the current picker and a possible solution for your engineers.

 

Thanks!

Re: Google Team Drives

Any progress on this feature? We really need to be able to easily integrate items stored in our Google Team Drives in our PS Learning classes. Is PowerSchool Learning going to put development resources into better supporting G-suite schools - or is new development focused on Office 365 integration?

Re: Google Team Drives

This is great news!  Thanks very much for sharing!

 

Is there a chance that your feature review team consider a reimplementation of the GDrive File Picker? The current "Recents" picker implementation is a huge headache for many of our teachers as it forces them to open another google drive window, locate the file NAME and then search directly for it rather than being able to navigate the folder structure.

 

Thanks again for keeping us up to date.
