    Description

      Moodle 3.3, Ubuntu 16.04 LAMP stack on Digital Ocean

      Google Drive repository does not show shared documents. Also does not show Team Drive(s). Now Team Drives are only for G Suite users but shared documents is quite a common feature and its neglect is clearly a bug unless it is a feature request

      Most teachers in an institution are on G Suite and they share say pictures of activities that they need to include in forum posts. These pictures are in one Google account but shared with all teachers. Unless this can be seen inside the file picker in Google Drive repository, Drive use becomes limiting. Ideally Team Drive (which is even more important in future) should be supported as well.

      Also, Google Drive throws an error when logging in upon 1st upgrading to Moodle 3.3 from 3.2.3+. I had to uninstall and re-install Google Drive for this function to work at all.
