Google Service Account support


I have never used Rclone before, so apologies if this is as daft question.

I work in IT in a school and we have G Suite for Education. Am I able to use Rclone service mode to upload users SMB home directories into their Google Drive on their behalf, without knowing their credentials please? I would like to make it as easy as possible for the children and staff, so want to migrate their data into their Google Drive for them.

Many Thanks for your help.

There is an issue about this here. I need help with it though - mostly in understanding exactly what needs to be done.
