Users can access the following features from the viewed file:


The (1) Drive Links component allows users to view a Drive file through an iframe embedding its Content URL, which is the saved URL to the (2) Drive file. If the file is a Google Doc, Sheet, or Presentation and the current user has edit access, it can also be edited through the iframe.
