I tested the following using 2 unique Gmail accounts: User Alice created a Google Group and invited User Bob to join. Alice created a Google Doc and wrote text. Alice shared the Google Doc with the Google Group via the group email address GROUP_NAME@googlegroups.com. Bob could view everything written so far and can edit the document. Alice then removed Bob ...

This was an issue with the sharing settings on the sheets. It looks like a sheet that is set to Specific People in the sharing settings cannot be automatically imported into a second sheet. If you have access to the first sheet, you can set up an IMPORTRANGE, but it will not update. The sharing permissions on the first sheet need to be set in such a way ...

Only one person can own a folder in Google Drive. You can allow access to other people, but there can be only one owner. http://support.google.com/drive/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=2494886

Just publish the template with read-only privileges. Then they can go File->Make a copy to duplicate it for their own use. That's how templates work.

I just ran into this same issue...we've never had an issue with importrange working across MANY sheets which are selectively shared, but today it randomly stopped working. I ran upon this article in my research. Upon further investigation, I found that only one spreadsheet that was failing to export--the importrange functions on that sheet were still ...

I already mentioned this on a recent question When sharing folders on Google Drive do users know who else the folder is shared with Users that are explictely included on the sharing settings could see who else has access to the file. To prevent this, create a Google Group, add the collaborators (editors/viewers) to that group then share the folder ...

It's not about the way you shared; it's about the locale that you use for each spreadsheet. Go to File -> Spreadsheet Setting -> and make sure you have same Locale and Time zone for both Google sheets. The one you put your data and calculations, and the one you shared with the others, and you used importrange() on it.

https://support.google.com/a/answer/6008339?hl=en states that a search in Drive for is:unorganized owner:me returns orphaned items that you own. Note that it returns the top-level folder if a folder hierarchy has been orphaned. From there you can use Move... to add item en masse to your own Drive.

EDIT: Some parts of this answer are now obsolete as Find your files - Drive Help was updated recently. This was noted thanks to the answer by Dean Ransevycz At this time Google Drive doesn't include a view nor a search operator to find only orphaned files. From [1]: To find an orphaned item, do one of the following: Search for the item in the ...

The best way to handle sharing files with large and dynamic groups on Google Drive is by using Google Groups, but it's also possible to do the way you are thinking by using Google Apps Script or the Google Drive API and the Google Sheets API To use a group from Google Groups to handle sharing files, share the files with the group by adding its email address....

Unless something has changed, Google Groups aliases should always dynamically change permissions based on people's membership in the group. The problem it sounds like you're having is that these docs aren't showing up in UserC's doc list. This is because UserC must first open the document before it will be added and remain in the doc list. For a single ...

Part 1 When sharing, the default setting is to allow anyone who has Edit rights to also Share the document. When you open the share window, you should see some small text at the bottom that says: "Editors will be allowed to add people and change the permissions. [Change]" Click on change, and then change the setting to "Only the owner can change the ...

This is what I have found out. Add formula =importRange(«url of file B»,«range») to file A. This makes the content of part of one file appear in the other (the one with the formula. Share file A, read only (Do not give edit/write permissions. If you give edit/write permission then they can gain read access to the other file, my editing or adding an ...

Sounds like you want a deep copy without any previous reference to the original folders & documents. Under these circumstances: Download the folder. Extract content Upload to your drive.

On the Google Drive search bar write to:usanername@example.com where usanername@example.com is the email address of the user that want to see the files shared with them and that you have access too.

The basic steps are: Using the personal account, share the files from the personal account to the G Suite Account Using the G Suite account, copy the files Related Transferring files across from ...

We could share files and folders with Google accounts and Google Groups, there is no way to "share a file with a folder" but you could move files owned by you. If the files are owned by other people from the same Organization they should move them. If the files are owned by people from a third-party organization, AFAIK it's not possible to transfer the ...

Here's another way to copy a folder with an external application: Add the folder to "My Drive". Open your account with a website: www.multcloud.com Find the folder - and create a copy into the account. *The service is free up to 50 gigabytes per month.

Does #2 override or add to the #1 access rights granted? No. The only way is by removing that user from the group or to create a new group with the same members except the user that should not have edit access.

The problem turned out to be caused by having a situation where A and B had both been logged in in the same browser at some point in recent memory. Here's the procedure I finally found to solve this problem: Use two different browsers for this work, e.g. Opera and Chrome. In Browser A, log in as B, then log out; now log in as A. In Browser B, log in as A, ...

You can share a Google Drive folder with a Google group. Need to share the folder at such address: Groupname@googlegroups.com Anyone who is removed from the group loses access!

I had the same problem and removed the sheet protection and it started updating.

No. For security reasons Google will always show the people a sheet is shared with. Your only other alternative would be to set it to public, but that would negate the option of "Specific people can access".

Sorry this is not possible yet in Google spreadsheet :(. But I am not sure if you have though of this solution yet; You could make a duplicate of both the spreadsheet b and a so that " the other people" can't see your historical data. Only issue with this is you would be remaking the whole thing:( Hope this help!

According to Authorization for Google Services it's not possible because for Standalone, add-on, or bound to Docs, Sheets, or Forms the script run as the user at keyboard. The alternatives is to convert your script to a web app or to a Installable trigger.
