|Using Jive for Google Docs|
You can only use Google Docs in a Jive place that has been connected to Google Drive as the storage provider.
Before creating a Jive-connected place, make sure your Community Manager has already configured the Google Docs integration and that the email you use for Jive has a Google account associated with it. For a more general topic on creating places, see How Do I Create a Group? in the Core documentation.
When you create a Jive place with Google Drive as the storage provider, the Jive for Google Docs integration instantly creates a Jive-connected folder in Google Drive. The new folder looks something like: [Jive Group] MyNewGroup. Although you are unable to link a Jive place to an existing Google folder, you can access this content from Jive by moving your existing Google folder into your newly created Jive-connected Google folder. Once you move and edit the existing Google folder content, the Jive for Google Docs integration will sync it and make it accessible from the Jive place.
To create a place that uses Google Docs:
|Don't Sync Google Docs||This less common option enables syncing of binary files, but not Google Docs. You can still create Google Docs from Jive, but you will only see them in Google Drive.|
|Sync Google Docs but Don't Sync Comments||This default option ensures that all files and Google Docs are synced between Google Drive and Jive, but does not sync comments made in Jive or in Google Docs.|
|Sync Google Docs and Comments||This option provides Bi-directional sync of all activity. You can upload binary files or add Google Docs in Google Drive (or Jive) and sync them back to Jive (or Google Drive). You can also sync Jive comments on a Google Doc with document-level comments on the same doc in Google Drive & Docs.|
