Attaching files from Google Drive

To attach files from Google Drive, open the Card Details and click on the Attach a file button underneath the inscription Attachments. A request for permission will be shown to you. Accept it if you trust Kanbanchi to view your Google Drive and attach files to cards. My Drive tab shows files you own. Select one or several files you want to attach and press the Select button. Use Shared with me and Previously selected tabs to find a file more quickly.

 

Note: When attaching a file from your personal Google Drive, please, make sure the file is shared with your collaborators, otherwise, they won’t be able to open it and will have to send you an additional request for sharing.
