With the Attachment data type, you can add files from multiple locations: your computer, Google Drive, Box, OneDrive, Dropbox, and more.
With the attachment data type, files can live in cells just like other data. And with attachment uploads, you can keep your team's files in Google Drive and attach them into Spreadsheet.com as needed. Or, if you already are using Google Drive, you don't need to change anything when you create a Spreadsheet.com account.
To upload an attachment from Google Drive, you must first (1) set a cell, range of cells, or column to the Attachment data type and second (2) link your Google Drive account to Spreadsheet.com.
How to link your Google Drive account
After you have set a cell, range of cells, or column to the Attachment data type, you can then link your Google Drive account to Spreadsheet.com. Linking your Google Drive account allows you to navigate your Google Drive files and chose ones to upload.
To link your account, choose to add an attachment by clicking on the add attachment button in an attachment cell. From the add attachment window, select Google Drive, and follow the instructions to sign into and link your Google Drive account. Linking Google Drive may open another window in your browser.
