Import files from Google Drive

Connecting your Google Account to Dovetail enables you to import files (including Google Meet recordings) directly into Dovetail.

Connect your Google Account

To connect your Google Account:

  1. Click your profile photo in the top right of the screen.

  2. Click Profile.

  3. Click Google Drive.

  4. Click Set up Google Drive.

  5. Log in with your Google Account details.

  6. Review requested permissions.

  7. Click Allow.

When you connect Google Drive to Dovetail, you will grant Dovetail access to see your primary Google Account email address, associate you with your personal info on Google, see and download all your Google Drive files as well as the names and emails of people you share files with. We use this information to display and import your Google Drive files to Dovetail, and to link your Google Account with Dovetail.

Dovetail's use of information received from Google APIs will adhere to the Google API Services User Data Policy, including the Limited Use requirements. Any information received from your Google Account is also handled in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

Import files into Dovetail

Once you have connected your Google Account, you can import files into Dovetail where they can be stored and viewed by your team. Google Drive files can be added to any project readme, note, tag description and insight.

Once connected to Google Drive, to import your files:

  1. Open the project readme, note, tag, or insight you want to add the file to.

  2. Click the Google Drive icon in the editor toolbar, or click the Google Drive button at the bottom of a note.

  3. If you've imported a Google Meet recording, you can then follow the steps to transcribe your video.

At this stage Google Drive file types, such as Google Sheets and Google Docs, are not supported.

Disconnecting your Google Account

If you wish to disconnect Google Account from Dovetail:

  1. Login to your Google Account and navigate to the account security page.

  2. Click Manage third-party access, then find Dovetail under Third-party apps with account access.

  3. Click the Dovetail.

  4. Click Remove access.

When you disconnect Dovetail, we will no longer have access to your Google Drive files or your Google Account information. Any files that you have imported into Dovetail before disconnecting will not be deleted and will remain in Dovetail.
