This is a critical and essential request. You can't only manage half of the file storage in Google and without this feature there is no BetterCloud in our future.
Completely agree. Without this BetterCloud is useless.
It would also be nice if there was a way to setup ACL like controls on folders, but I realize this is completely up to google to implement. There just isn't that much granular control over these things.
Though, it would be extremely helpful to be able to set up a workflow or policy so that when a member is removed from a team drive, it would notify the other Owners of the team drive or Admins, of the change to make sure it was a planned edit. It's a pain that users have to have manage member access to delete files...
I agree this is an essential feature and it's the direction Google is going/pushing users to store files so without that support we are working blind.
also agree, this need action asap, main reason why we use bettercloud.
For us to use this as a secure file share in the future we must have the ability to obtain reports just like we can with Google Drive. We need to be able to see if anyone is sharing any Team Drive documents outside our domain. We also need to be able to obtain a quick list of the Team Drive names to avoid duplications and also monitor them.
Is there any progress taking place in this direction. We have a critical need with the growth of Team Drives for the ability to monitor, audit and take action with Team Drives.
We're actively investigating how we want to solve the team drive use case going forward (Google's APIs for this have made it a little bit of a challenge in the past). Nkem (who I think you've spoken with in the past) is the PM for this area, and he's going to reach out to soon to set some time up to talk through your team drive use cases.
I would be happy to talk about this issue. Please feel welcome to call any

Yes, all of the above. It would be great to set a Policy on specific Team Drives that prevent sharing externally for example. or prevent sharing with a different subdomain.
Visibility in the Drive Audit would be a great start.
Great to hear that it's moving forward. We rely on Team Drives heavily and are migrating all our Drive files there.
This is critical!!!!
