You can also attach files from the Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive / Sharepoint to tasks, projects and comments in awork.
How to do it
- Select the respective cloud drive during upload. A window for login will open (if none opens, see section below)
- Log in with your account and you can search your Cloud Drive.
- Select the file you want to attach.
- The file will then appear in your task, project or as a placeholder in your comment.
You can delete the file in the same way as regularly uploaded files. Only the link of the file to awork is deleted. The file remains unaffected in your Cloud Drive.
The window does not open
If the window does not open automatically, your browser probably prevents the pop-up from opening. Depending on your browser, do the following:
Chrome: At the top right of the URL line a small symbol appears, which indicates that a popup has been prevented. Click on it and allow it for your awork URL. Then select your Cloud Drive again to attach the file.
Firefox: A yellow notification bar will appear indicating that a popup has been blocked. Click on "Settings" on the right side of the bar and allow it for your awork URL. Then select your Cloud Drive again to attach the file.
Safari: A notice will appear in the URL saying that a popup has been prevented. Click on the hint or on the small window icon and the popup will open.
If this does not help, it is possible that your browser blocks necessary cookies. 🍪
My colleague cannot open the file
The file from your cloud drive is only linked to awork.
Not everyone who is allowed to see the task or project in awork can automatically see the files in the selected Cloud Drive.
It is therefore possible that someone does not have access to the file. This must then be regulated separately in the drive itself.
For Google-Drive this can be easily done with a permission request, which you can send when you open a file which you don't have permissions for.
The easiest way is even to connect awork and Google-Drive with your Slack. Then you can answer these permission requests with one click from within Slack.
I have to enter my password every time
It is best to save your Google or OneDrive login in your browser, then it is only an account selection.
If you work with several accounts this comes in very handy. Furthermore, the procedure ensures that in awork no accounts per user have to be saved.
