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.
G Suite editions
By default, you can add members and give them full access to upload, edit, and delete files, and to invite other members.
G Suite Basic users in the same domain have view-only access to Team Drives. Team Drive members can still give G Suite Basic users editing or commenting access to individual files.
Note: If a G Suite Basic user is added from an external domain, they will have view and edit access.
