Google Drive Assignment App

  • Review this article in the Schoology help center for guidance on implementing and using the Google Drive Assignments app.
  • There are some limitations to the new Google Drive Assignment App in Schoology. Be sure to check out Schoology's Troubleshooting Guide when using this new feature. 
  • When Schoology Assignments are copied to other courses or saved to Resources, the assignment will only retain information that is native to Schoology (assignment title, description, etc.) and static files (links, PDFs, etc.). Google Drive Assignments will not remain attached. Google Drive Assignments will require manual re-attachment once the Schoology assignment has been added to its destination course.
