What is the Google Drive™ Integration in Vault?
The integration between Google Drive™ and Vault allows users to collaborate on documents within the Google Drive™ workspace.
Users can check out, edit, check in, and undo checked out files using Google Drive™. Vault automatically opens these file formats in Google Workspace Editor in the appropriate editor based on the file type:
- .docx opens in Google Docs
- .xlsx opens in Google Sheets
- .pptx opens in Google Slides
Other file types open the file preview. Users can share, download, or move these files to a different location in their Google Drive™.
Users can share checked out documents with other users in Google Drive. The users available for collaboration are controlled by a user's Google Drive domain and do not reflect any sharing settings configured on the document in Vault.
Users must have the appropriate permissions on each document to perform the applicable action. For example, checking out a document to Google Drive requires the Edit Document permission. Users' abilities using the Google Drive integration are limited by their permissions on each document.
