Can you read all my dashboard information? Does Kanbanchi have access to other files in our Google Drive?
Dashboard data (such as card description, comments, activity and similar) is stored in Google Cloud owned by Kanbanchi Ltd. We need to store this data in our database to deliver some features such as activity feed. Nevertheless, there is some data associated with a board we do not have access to, i.e. user access permissions – we can not include it into a dashboard file by definition.
Files you attach to cards (attachments) are stored in your Google Drive, Kanbanchi does not store them in its database. When you see attachments on cards, they are just links to real files on your Google Drive.
We access your files on Google Drive to be able to attach files on cards, but we do not read or modify files in your Google Drive. When you click on the Attach a file button, Kanbanchi needs to open a window, which shows your Drive files for you to make a selection. If you upload files from your computer Kanbanchi needs to save these files to your Google Drive. It’s only way Kanbanchi interacts with other files in your Google Drive. That is why when you first try to attach a new file to your card in Kanbanchi, a pop-up window with the request for permission will be shown to you. We ask for access to view files in your Google Drive to be able to attach files to cards.
