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 find their AODocs libraries quickly 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 any new member added to the group receives the pushed folder.

Tip: The Push to My Drive 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. Press the gear button and select Security center.


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

3. Select 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.


4. Press Done.

Note: When the library is created, the checkboxes 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 selected by default.

Tip: If you plan to prepare the library (create folders, import files) before pushing it to your collaborators, unselect these options until the library is ready to be pushed.
