Connect to google drive folder

Hello,

 

I am trying to connect Power BI desktop to a google drive FOLDER that has several files inside. (This link is provided by the client) I want to be able to view all files data just like if I were to connect to a local folder with several files. 

 

I have made sure that the google drive folder shared link has edit ability but when I enter the URL into BI I cannot see any data. (Including view of what I see)

I usually edit the URL to reflect: /export?format=csv at the end of a google sheet and that works, but that is not working for the sharable link provided for the folder.

Has anyone been able to connect to a google drive folder?
