Link Google Drive files to a Salesforce record

Using Drive Connect, users can link files stored in Google Drive to specific records in Salesforce using the Drive Links component.

This will allow members of your organization to view, edit, and collaborate on pertinent documentation without ever having to leave Salesforce and making your business process more efficient.

Note: The sharing options modal will only be shown on Google Drive files that do not already have sharing options of any kind set at the time you create the file link.
