Linking Files From Google and Dropbox

You have the ability to add links to files you have stored in your Google Docs/Drive or Dropbox accounts.

This feature will add a link to the selected Google/Dropbox files that anyone with access to the Files tool in an Event can click on and access. It WILL NOT give them access to your entire Google Docs/Drive or Dropbox account; it will only give them access to the linked files.

To Link a File from Google Docs/Drive:

  1. Click on the "Files" tool button on the Event Dashboard - OR - use the Quick Launch tool to select the appropriate Event and the "Files" tool.
  2. Click on the "Link Files From Other Applications" button.
  3. Select the "Google Drive" option.
    • If you are not logged into Google, a modal box will appear prompting you to log in. You may be asked to give permission to Planning Pod to access certain information in your Google account.
  4. Select the file that you wish to create a link to. The link will be added momentarily.
  5. Repeat if you wish to add additional linked files.
