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.

You can link your data in Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, Microsoft OneDrive, and SharePoint.

Step 2

Assuming you have your assets stored in Google Drive, click on the Google Drive icon.

Step 3

On 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.

Step 4

When you’re connected to Google Drive, you will notice how it has been mapped to your Paperflite account.

Step 5

Then, head over to Content Hub, and select a Stream that you’d like to map.

Step 6

Click on ‘Manage Source’ at the top of the menu.

Step 7

Click on ‘+Map a New Folder.

Step 8

Select the Google account that you’ve already connected to map your content.

Step 9

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 content 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.
