Converts various representations of a shared drive into a dribble, the object used by googledrive to hold Drive file metadata. Shared drives can be specified via

  • Name

  • Shared drive id, marked with as_id() to distinguish from name

  • Data frame or dribble consisting solely of shared drives

  • List representing Drives resource objects (mostly for internal use)

A shared drive supports files owned by an organization rather than an individual user. Shared drives follow different sharing and ownership models from a specific user's "My Drive". Shared drives are the successors to the earlier concept of Team Drives. Learn more about shared drives.

This is a generic function.


as_shared_drive(x, ...)



A vector of shared drive names, a vector of shared drive ids marked with as_id(), a list of Drives resource objects, or a suitable data frame.


Other arguments passed down to methods. (Not used.)


if (FALSE) {
# specify the name

# specify the id (substitute one of your own!)
