Google Team Drives

Is it possible to post assignments and docs that reside in a Google Team Drive directly from PS Learning?  

 

We have encouraged our staff to use Team Drives for school documents to combat ownership issues, but the inability to post assignments from those Team Drives is a problem.  Thoughts, anyone?

Thank you for your support with this feature request!

 

PowerSchool Learning users within your district should be able to select a folder within the Google Drive drop-down.  I have added screenshots below of the feature to select a folder within Google Drive.image (9).png

Hi @cgarber!

 

Thank you for posting in our Community!

 

While our current Google integration does not include Team Drive specifically, we have previously received this feedback and we are happy to add your request as well. Our current G Suite integration is available for our school and district accounts and you can read a bit more about what that includes here: https://help.powerschool.com/t5/Learning-G-Suite/What-can-I-do-in-PowerSchool-Learning-using-the-G-S....

 

As you may already know, our solo teachers don’t have the full range of that integration, but are able to connect their accounts with Google. This article has more info on how: https://help.powerschool.com/t5/Learning-G-Suite/How-can-I-connect-my-PowerSchool-Learning-account-t....

Thanks, Scott; do you have a timeframe or prediction for Team Drive integration?  This is a bit of a hurdle for implementation at our school to not be able to access Team Drive docs and integrate them to Learning courses.

It's my pleasure.

We don't have any updates for integrating Team Drive functionality that I can share at this time. I would recommend keeping an eye out for any announcements for updates that may include this functionality in the future.

Thank you Scott. A lot of people in our school are interested in the Team Drive feature for uploading and sharing documents on PS Learning. Please let us know if there is a way "up vote" the feature for the next major release!

Hi, Scott!  Are you aware of any updates now that might include integration of Google Team Drives in the future for PowerSchool Learning?  We're not sure where to look to find future updates.

Hi @cgarber,

 

I don't have any information regarding integration of Google Team Drive functionality into PowerSchool Learning at this time. We do have this request submitted to our development team for review and integration, but I don't have any further information that I can share at this point.

 

Be sure to keep an eye on your email for messages from the PowerSchool Learning Team for updates on new features and integrations for PowerSchool Learning.

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!

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!

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,

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!

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?

The feature request has been escalated to the PowerSchool Product team for PowerSchool Learning.  We will be able to provide more information regarding the feature request as the Product team reviews the request.

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.
