updated about 1 month ago
All of us have content residing in different places such as Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and SharePoint.
How easy would it have been to link all your content repositories with Paperflite?
Well, that’s exactly what you can do, so you are never far from your content.
Before integrating with a data source, make sure you’re linked to one of them. Let’s see how you can do this.
Log in to Paperflite.On the homepage, go to Settings, Data Source Management and notice the various data source integration options that we have in the top pane. You can link your data in Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, Microsoft OneDrive and SharePoint.
Assuming you have your assets stored in Google Drive, click on the Google Drive icon.
In the next screen, choose the Google account that has been used to set up your Google Drive.
Now, click ‘Allow’ to be able to access your content. Don’t forget to read Paperflite’s Terms of Service and Privacy Policies so you know how your data is being handled.
When you’re connected to Google Drive, you will notice how it has been mapped to your Paperflite account.
Then, head over to My Hub, select a Stream that you’d like to map.
Click on ‘Manage Source’ at the top of the menu.
Click on ‘+Map a New Folder.’
Click on the Google account that you’ve already connected to map your content.
Connect to the respective folder in Google Drive that you’d like to link.
Keeping your files up to date in Paperflite
Once you've mapped the file in Google Drive, you can now easily synchronize it for all changes that you make in the data source. Notice how the file path in the data source is mapped in Paperflite. Click on 'Sync' to make all your files in line with your data stream.
Integrating with other data sources such as Box, Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive and SharePoint is seamless and follows the same procedure.
