Using Jive for Google Docs

If your community manager enables the Jive for Google Docs integration, you need to configure Jive places to store documents in Google Drive. Once configured, you can create Google documents, spreadsheets, and presentations in Jive, and you can take advantage of the Jive for Google Docs simultaneous editing feature from Jive.

Here are some tips for using Google Docs in Jive:
  • When you create or edit Google docs from Jive, you're using the Google content editor.
  • Jive's Spotlight search finds content in Google documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and in PDFs stored in Jive-connected Google folders.
  • When you share Google documents with non-members of the Jive place, they receive a PDF containing the document content. Just click Share to the right of a document to share it.
  • Clicking one of the Google Drive links at the bottom of the page to see all of the Google documents, spreadsheets, or presentations in this Jive-connected Google group.
  • Clicking the Go to Google Drive file link in the Actions menu to open the document in Google Drive.
  • Clicking Edit to use the Google Editor without clicking away from Jive.
