Requirements to manage Team Drives
G Suite administrators
To manage Team Drives, you must be a G Suite administrator with the “Drive and Docs” privilege.
This privilege allows you to:
- Temporarily turn off the ability to create Team Drives.
- View the Team Drives in your organization.
- Add and remove the people who can access a particular Team Drive.

User access permissions
By default, you can add members and give them full access to upload, edit, and delete files, and to invite other members.
Within the same domain, G Suite Basic users have only view access. Team Drive members can still give G Suite Basic users editing or commenting access to individual files.
