  • Name.

  • Team Drive id. Mark with as_id() to distinguish from name.

  • Data frame or dribble consisting solely of Team Drives.

  • List representing Team Drive resource objects. Mostly for internal use.

Note: Team Drives are only available to users of certain enhanced Google services, such as G Suite Enterprise, G Suite Business, or G Suite for Education.

This is a generic function.

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