Enable Team Drive for your School

As of March 10, 2017, Team Drive, the new collaborative file storage feature of Google Drive, is available for all G Suite for Education organizations.

Here's how you can enable Team Drive for your School

While Team Drive is available for all Google Domains, it is off by default and must be enabled by a district administrator.

Visit the Admin Console and visit Apps > G Suite > Settings for Drive and Docs > Sharing Setting > Team Drive Creation.

Uncheck the box the prevents users from using Team Drive until January 2018.
Enable Team Drive
This change can take up to to an hour before it will be accessible by users within you organization. 

Team Drive provides a place for groups to collect, share, and manage files in Google Drive. Unlike a traditional shared folder in Drive, Team Drive provides additional access and content management tools specifically designed for team.
