With the Google Drive integration, you can allow us to automatically import photos into property sites from Google Drive folders. This will create a fast and efficient workflow for you that your clients will appreciate! This will also allow you and your team members to send photos to an editor and have that editor put them in Google Drive for an even quicker photo delivery process.

If you would like us to create folders for you, choose whether you want us to create them for "My Orders" or "All Preparing Sites". Note: "My Orders" will only create folders for sites with an order attached to them. "All Preparing Sites" will create folders for all sites whether they have an order or not.

Step 14: After we have imported the photos, you can choose what you would like us to do with the photos on your Google Drive. We can either "Leave it there" or "Move to a 'Done' sub-folder". Note: having us move the files to a "Done" sub-folder is a quick and easy way for you to see that the photos have been imported.
Step 15: Now, you can create a test property to ensure that your Google Drive is completely set up!
