Setting up Google Drive Integration

The Setting up Google Drive Integration


  • You are not able to upload files/folders that you do not have write/edit permissions too

  • Working on the auto sync option - currently, if you update a file in Google Drive and you want those changes to reflect on the file in the CMS, you will need to re-upload that file for the changes to show.

  • All files uploaded into the file manager from your Google drive will automatically upload into your My FIle folder within the file manager. Ex: If you are uploading a file into your header gallery, the folder that system defaults to is the building folder. You will have to find the uploaded file by changing the group folder to your my file folder.
