How can we help?

Who can view and edit documents I add to PowerSchool Learning through the Google Drive block?

Q: How do I determine who can view or edit a in PowerSchool Learning added through the Google Drive content block?

A: When you embed a Google Doc in your class using the Google Drive Block, the document permissions will be updated to: People at [Google Domain] with the link can view.  

Any Student or Teacher in your roster who has logged in with G Suite to your PowerSchool Learning domain (and who can see the Content Block) can then view the document. You are also able to limit who has the ability to edit the document. 

You have a couple of options with edit permissions:

Teachers only

Students can view the document embedded in the Class Page, but they are not able to open or edit the document.

Permissions for the document in Google Drive will be changed to People at [your Google Domain] with the link can view. The document will be shared with other Teachers in the Class, and they will have edit access.

 

Students and Teachers

Students and Teachers can edit the document. Students can click the pencil icon in the top-right corner of the Content Block, which will open the document in a new tab in Google Drive, with full edit permissions.

Permissions for the document in Google Drive will be changed to People at [your Google Domain] with the link can edit. 

 

Did you know?

You can add Google Documents to Files Blocks, Assignments, the Inbox, Discussions and other areas of your class, too!  Check out this article for more information on how permissions are effected throughout your class.
