Drive Transfer Update

Drive Transfer Update

Drive Transfer is getting an update next week on Tuesday, May 19. We are switching to the latest and greatest API from Google, which is a Data Transfer API. This means that Drive Transfer in gPanel will be changing slightly.

This feature will be in the same place, it will just look and act different. You will simply choose the original user and then the new user that you'd like to transfer the Drive to.

What's Changing?

  • Previously you were able to choose between transferring all docs or a particular folder. In the new functionality the entire Drive will be transferred to the destination user.

  • Previously you were able to choose an action to take on the transferring document’s shares. For example, you could leave the previous owner as an editor or viewer. In the new functionality there will not be an option to choose an action and the previous owner will be left as an editor.
