Push Team Folders or Secured Folders to users' My Drive

Team Folder and Secured Folder libraries can be accessed directly in the Google Drive interface. 
As a library administrator, you can automatically push Team Folder or Secured Folder libraries into the “My Drive” of the end-users of your G Suite domain allowing them to quickly find their AODocs libraries by browsing their Google Drive folders.

Notes: If the Team Folder or Secured Folder library is shared with a Google Group, AODocs pushes it to every member of the Google Group. AODocs periodically (at least once a day) checks the list of members of the group so that any new member added to the group receives the pushed folder.

Tip: The Push to MyDrive feature is especially useful for new people joining a company or a team. Indeed, each new employee receives all the information they need directly in their My Drive without having to ask co-workers for the links to the shared folders.

1. Click on the gear button and then select Security center.

2. Check the checkbox Add the library’s root folder to every user’s My Drive folder.
   The library will be automatically pushed to the My Drive of users who have access to it.

3. Check the checkbox Notify users via email when the folder is pushed to their My Drive.
   Users having access to the library will receive a notification email.Push_to_your_MyDrive.png

4. Click on Done.

Note: At the creation of the library, the checkboxes settings “Add the library’s root folder to every user’s My Drive folder” and “Notify users via email when the folder is pushed to their My Drive” are by default checked.

Tip: If you plan to prepare the library (creating folders, importing files) before pushing it to your collaborators, clear the option until the library is ready to be pushed.
