What is Google Drive?

Google Drive is cloud native and allows you to store, share and collaborate on files and folders from any mobile device, tablet or computer.

How we work together:

Our Google Drive Data Source Connector can pull in data from personal and shared drives. Import from file types like Excel or CSV into Data Sources that can be used by the platform for building apps and forms. Schedule imports for timely data refreshes for always up to date records.

Our Google Drive form connector works alongside Google Workspace and can store documents in both personal and shared drives. Customise the file path and name, and create files in a variety of formats including Text (TXT) and MS Word.

Data Source Use Cases

  • Import a list of Site Managers and Locations that has been exported from an HR system as a CSV file. Use a filtered Choices Field in a Data Entry screen to automatically select the correct Site Manager based on a location entered by an app user.
  • Import a list of Site details containing a site name, site code and site manager name and contact phone number. Use a Listing Screen type to create a search by site name. Display the appropriate contact information for the searched site and pass the contact phone number to the native dialer on the mobile device.

Data Delivery Use Cases

  • Save a Text file for each new submission of an HR update form. Apply a JSON template so the resulting file can be imported by the HR system in the correct format.
  • Using the Employee Name from the data entry, customise the folder path for saving the text file to make sure each entry appears within the employee specific folder.
  • Use our Google Drive Form Connector to store data in CSV, excel, JSON, PDF, TXT, Word, XML file formats.
