Working with Team Drives

Introduction

Starting from version 2.5.0, the Connector supports Google Team Drives, a feature in G Suite. For more information on Google Team Drives, check out Google's documentation.

Unlike files in My Drive, files in Team Drive belong to the team instead of an individual. Even if members leave, the files stay exactly where they are so your team can continue to share information and get work done.

This guide will show you how to use this Connector with Google Team Drives. The process to embed a file or folder works almost exactly the same as with a personal drive. Before attempting to embed a file or folder, ensure the Google account you have logged in to has access to the desired Team Drive.

Embedding a File from Team Drive

  1. In the Confluence page edit mode, create a Drive macro.

  2. When the pop-up window appears, click Select File or Folder.



  3. You may be asked to log in to your Google account.
    After logging in, the Google file selection dialog window will appear.

  4. Click on the Team Drives tab to access the available Team Drives.



  5. Choose your desired folder and browse the files in your Team Drive.
    Click Select on the file you want to embed in the Confluence page.



  6. The file you selected should now be previewed in the macro window.
    You can now customize the Height (in pixels) or Width (in percentage) of the display window for the embedded document.



  7. After you have saved the page, you should have the document from your Team Drive embedded on the Confluence page:
