Sharing Drive Folders with User Groups

Blog: Dave Thinking Aloud - David French

A little issue that has caused a day’s worth of pain …

If you share a folder with a Google Apps user group and, later, add a user to that group the new member will not see the folder or it’s content until that user explicitly follows a link to the folder. This issue (see here for a variant) is not confined to the Google Drive UI, it will occur in scripted access to the folder as well.

It is easy to make this a self-service function by publishing the link to the top level folder that is to be shared in a welcome to user/role page.
