One of the benefits of using Glip for team messaging and collaboration is that you can get so much done with real-time chat, task management, calendar sharing, even video calls and screen sharing, all in one unified online workspace. But what happens when someone wants to share a file with a team, but that file isn’t already in Glip? What if it’s in that teammate’s Google Drive cloud account?
This is where Google Drive integration comes in. When you integrate Google Drive with your Glip account, you can pull any document, presentation, image, video, or other file stored in Google Drive right into Glip to share with your team without ever leaving Glip.
This means you and your team:
No more jumping in and out of different collaboration tools.
Reduce email clutter
No need to email Google Drive files to your teammates.
Get better organized
Easily pull all relevant files (even those from external apps like Google Drive) into your Glip projects, teams, or tasks.
You’ll be able to pull a file from Google Drive right into your Glip workspace anytime by clicking on the paper clip icon on the right side of any of your Glip messages.
Use the pop-up window to sign in with your email address or phone to authorize Glip. Now you can share (and store) files from Google Drive in your Glip workspace without ever leaving Glip.
When you pull a Google Drive file into a Glip team or project, your teammates can work with it just like they would any other file you drop into the conversation. They can view it, “like” it with a thumbs-up, add it to their favorites menu, share it with colleagues, or move it to another team or conversation.
And the best part?
Google Drive integration is free to all Glip users.
