Google Drive integration

In this article

Google Drive is Google’s cloud-based storage and file-sharing service.

How does this integration work?

Envoy integrates with Google Drive, making it simple to save signed NDAs and easily share them with your team. Once the integration is enabled, a PDF of each signed NDA will be automatically uploaded to the folder of your choice.

Note: If you have multiple visitor types, NDAs for all visitor types will file to the same folder.

Enabling the Envoy + Google Drive integration

Note: Files will be stored in your Google Drive, so it is not necessary to hold a higher administrator position. If multiple people on your team need access to your signed NDAs, you can adjust the sharing settings the folder where they’re stored. However, you may consider authenticating with an admin G Suite account to prevent the need to re-enable the integration should the original authenticator leave your company, as the NDA folder is tied to the initial authenticator’s personal Google Drive unless re-enabled.

  1. Go to Integrations > All integrations.
  2. Under File sharing, find Google Drive. Click “Install.”
  3. If prompted, log in to your Google account.
  4. When asked if can view and manage files and folders created by this app, click the “Allow” button.
  5. Under Choose where to file signed NDAs, type the folder name or file path for the folder where your NDAs should be stored. Make sure there are minimal spaces in the folder name/file paths being used which can cause issues setting up the integration.
    • In this example, signed NDAs will get stored in a folder called Envoy that is within a folder called Signed NDAs.
    • Note: You do not have to create these folders in advance; they will be created the first time an NDA is signed after you complete the integration setup. If the folder had been previously created, make sure it is in “My Drive” for the person who authenticated this integration.
  6. Click “Complete setup.”

Setting up file sharing

When you enable this integration, the folders will be created in your Google Drive. If other people on your team need access to these signed NDAs, you’ll want to adjust the folder’s sharing preferences.

How signed NDAs look

Signed NDAs will file into the designated Google Drive folder as a PDF file. The PDF file name contains the visitor’s entry date and visitor’s name, making it easy to find a specific file when you need it. If any NDAs fail to sync, they can be retrived in the Visitor log by clicking on the visitor’s name and then clicking the “PDF” icon to download.
