• Team Drives is designed to centralize your department’s files.
  • Team Drives eliminates the issues with individual owners! Designed to store the team’s work collectively, so if a document’s creator moves off the team or leaves LCISD, that document doesn’t go with them.
  • Team members prevented from accidentally removing or deleting files that others need.


Sharing rules in Team Drives provide a consistent view of content to all team members. Team Drives allow controls that prevent members from removing or accidentally deleting files.

There are 4 tiers of access for members:

  • Full Access – upload/delete/edit files
  • Edit Access – edit/upload files
  • Comment Access – view/comment on files
  • View Access – View files
