Google Drive

Table of Contents


    Sharing documents and files is an essential part of collaboration and teamwork. Google Drive is a file storage and synchronization service, which enables cloud storage, file sharing, collaborative editing and keeps track of all your changes with revision history.


    Google Drive module is available on all paid plans. Upon subscription completion, it will be enabled in all your projects. For projects you are invited to or project groups you are an administrator - please ask a project owner to upgrade to enable it. 

    GDrive files attached to your projects during 14 days free trial will be still available for you if you decide not to go ahead with the subscription.

    If you'd like to disable this module, please see this documentation article.

    How It Works

    Once installed you will see an additional option to attach from Google Drive.

    Sign in to a Google account (we provide an option to switch Google accounts on the next step).

    Now you can:

    (1) Switch Google accounts

    (2) Use filters

    (3) Change between thumbnail and list views

    (4) Search your files (check Google documentation for tips and tricks)

    (5) Select one or multiple files and add them to Freedcamp.

    Your files will remain stored on Google Drive. Make sure that you shared them on Google Drive with your team.

    Attached documents contain tiny Google Drive icon and option to open them on Google Drive.

    Google Drive files will not be uploaded to Freedcamp and another file copy will not be created, however, you can see all files attached from Google Drive in Files section.

    (1) - see files from Google Drive

    (2) - search files in your project linked from GoogleDrive

    (3) - easily open items those files were attached to (click an application icon to open your files in context)

    If it does not work

    1. Check if your browser allows third-party cookies and enable them. Open

    and follow the instructions and if it is disabled.

    2. Please check Google Drive settings. Drive SDK checkbox must be checked as shown below (looks like this interface is deprecated by Google and no longer available)

    All Google integration options

    Finally we would like to list all Google integration options you can find in Freedcamp:

    • To link you Google account and access Freedcamp without a need to type your credentials, if you are logged in into your Google account, or use Google single sign-on otherwise. You can always use your Freedcamp’s user name or email and a password to login as well.

    • To sync your Freedcamp’s calendar to your Google calendar.

    • To attach Google Drive files to TODOs, Discussions and comments inside Freedcamp. Please login into your account, visit Add-ons and install Google Drive module.
