Introduction

Department Shared Drives are a shared space in Google Drive where departments can easily store, search, and access their files from any device. They are managed by designated managers in your department, and only managers have the power to add, remove, and change the membership roles of members in department Shared Drives. Whoever is primarily responsible for adding and removing users to a Shared Drive should be assigned a manager. This may be your team's supervisor, or perhaps an administrative assistant.

If you need to manage a department Shared Drive, contact an existing manager of the Shared Drive to add you as a manager.
