How to add Google Drive to a space

How to attach a Google Drive file to a task

  • In the task, under Apps, click on "Attach a file" next to the Google Drive symbol.
  • If it is your first time attaching a Google Drive file, you may need to log in.  Otherwise, your Google Drive files will appear.  Select the file that you wish to attach to the task and click "Select."
  • The file will then be attached to the task.  
  • Please note - attaching a file to a task will not amend the viewing permissions of the file.  You may still need to add permissions to the file to ensure your teammates can access the file.  For more information on Google drive permissions, see their support information here.
