Is there a way to show the Drive sharing dialog when the page is loaded over HTTPS? When I try to achieve that the following error is displayed in the console:
"[blocked] The page at 'https://...' was loaded over HTTPS, but ran insecure content from 'http://www.google.com/intl/pl/drive/about.html': this content should also be loaded over HTTPS."

I've had a look at some existing sites that make use of the sharing dialog and they suffer from the same issue - e.g. www.draw.io.

I have also posted a question to SO about this but haven't got an answer yet - http://stackoverflow.com/questions/22083260/google-drive-sharing-dialog-javascript-sdk-doesnt-work-over-https.

I suspect it's a bug with the SDK and it would be great to see some acknowledgement from Google or even an estimate on when a fix can be expected as this is quite a basic feature. Thanks!

The one feature I could really use would be sharing/permissions.insert based on Google+ ID, those are used all over the place anyway now and it would enable us to share resources with folks without the need to share emal addresses.

"Google Drive Photostream"

Not altogether sure if this is the correct place to post this idea but I'd be very interested to hear your thoughts nonetheless.

Google Drive should be the location that photos and videos on Android phones/tablets get synced to. Currently I believe they go to a cloud folder in G+.

However a lot of the time my photos are for design work, or maybe I just want to organise them in folders myself.

Would be a lot smoother of they went to a "Photostream" folder in Drive, that one can then drag and drop and reorganise if desired to different folders within Drive. Plus they are then on my PC automatically via sync, which means I can then edit them or include them in work presentations without having to mess around redownloading and uploading files constantly.

Thoughts?
And any ideas if this can be implemented? Who are the best people to talk to?

What is the canonical way to avoid sync storms with the changes feed?

The issue I have is exemplified by the following sequence of events...
1. I poll the changes feed, which at this time is empty
2. I PUT a change to a file-A (which gives me a response A1)
3. I poll the changes feed, which now contains a change item (A2) for file-A

The question is, do I ignore A2 on the basis that it's simply a reflection of step 2, or do I download it on the basis that it might be a change from elsewhere?

Ideally, A1 would include the change ID, which I could compare in step 3 (which is why I've tagged this as a feature request).

Watching the traffic, it appears that A1 and A2 have a matching etag, but in the past I've seen that there was a delay before the etag was updated. Is matching the etag the recommended solution?

Google sheets: SUMIFS doesn't work with an array criterion, the way Excel does. If you give Google SUMIFS an array as the criterion, it just compares the first element and returns the corresponding scalar, instead of comparing all elements and returning a vector like Excel does. Could we please have a vector SUMIFS like Excel has?

For the Realtime Javascript API, could we please have basic per object permissions for the individual models created on the document? For example: my document is writable by other collaborators, but perhaps I want some of my models (list, string, map) to remain read-only. This would greatly increase the range of applications of this API. Nice work btw, it's very impressive and I believe a model for how simple, yet powerful future APIs can be...

Scenario: 
I have this folder structure: 
Root 
    | 
    | folderA 
    | folderB 
    | FolderC 
    | folderClient 
          | 
          | -> ClientA 
          |          | -> FileA1 
          |          | -> FileA2 
          |          | -> FileA3 
          | 
          | -> ClientB 
          |         | -> FileB1 
          |         | -> FileB2 
          | -> ClientC 

I would like to search for a text (title or full text) file in the folder and subfolder "folderClient" and NOT in the other folders. Research in individual folders works so well as research into the root but not in the case that I have described. How can you make? 
Thank

Hi Roy, select  choices. (1) do a recursive search for each subfolder of folderClient. I think the cleanest. thank you

A feature that our school could benefit from is the the ability to give edit privileges on folders/documents but not delete or rename. There needs to be a more detailed level of permissions.

I agree with this.  We need some better ACL permissions in Google Drive.  Something that better mimics traditional file servers.   Better delete controls, and the ability to create dropbox folders as well (write but not read...)

Also the ability to recursively change ownership of files in folders would be HUGE...

Hi, I would like to be able to describe the importance of the file without opening it, some kind of #file_metadata. For example, if I have a lot of documents about let's say, data analysis, I would like to be able to:
1. Put some kind of quick interest indicator (stars?)
2. Write a short description of the file (this is Einstein paper's about relativity) to be able to locate it later.
3. Be able to have a discussion with other people (as in comments) but regarding the file.

Obviously with search capabilities on the comments (list all the documents that have interesting in the description) and sort capabilities on the stars (order by stars) 

That way, with a small effort on the storing side, it would be much less painful to find the right document when I need it.

Thanks! Cheers!!!

+Carlos Ollero Serrano One of the things you are listing are already available on every document:
2. You can add a description to the file by opening the Activity pane (the (i) icon) and click on Details, you'll see the file details and a Description field where you can add text, and this text is searchable.
Ex. Document Title: "Paper 123" Description: "Author: Einstein" I can search for "Einstein" and find the document.

When in a folder or file in Drive, it should be obvious where that folder or file is located n the folder hierarchy. For example, lets say I have a folder open called "Chairs". Currently Drive has the title "Chairs" at the top of the page.

Would be nice if I could see that Chairs was in the folder "Design", which in turn is in the folder "Work".

Any ideas why this is currently not the case? :)

Trying to see if I can use a private community to set privileges for access to a folder on Google Drive. It seems that Google Drive recognizes circles but not communities. Any plans for it to also recognize communities?

I'm looking for a function to allow a file or folder to be shared at a particular time.  I've searched around a bit (though maybe I didn't use the right keywords!)

Does anyone know if this is in any way possible?  Or maybe there is a clever workaround?

Ideally I want to be able to share a folder with a group of people, but only after a given time.  Obviously if it were possible to set it up in advance, it would save having to be online at the correct moment.

Any advice or suggestions would be much appreciated!

The best way to do that with the minimum of coding would be to use Apps Script. Create a small script to do the sharing, then bind it to a Trigger to run at a set time.
