One way you can add content to the library is by importing assets from your Google Drive. In the guide below, we'll show you how to do so. We'll also show you how to keep this information up-to-date in Dock.

Importing Content

Step 1: Navigate to a Collection within the library.

Step 2: Select Google Drive as your option when adding new content.

If you want a recap in how to get to this step to create content, in general, click here.

Step 3: A pop up will appear prompting you to sign into your Google account. Follow the steps to allow access!

Step 4: You'll then be taken back to the screen where you have Google Drive as an available tab to Select a file from.

Here, you'll see all of the files or folders that have been shared with you.

Step 5: Select file and then click Select button at the bottom of the module.

Dock Tip: To select multiple items in a list, hold down the Ctrl (PC) or Command (Mac) key. You can also select all items in a list by holding down the shift key and selecting the first and last file listed.

Updating/Resyncing an Asset

One of the benefits of importing content directly from your Drive is that you can keep it updated more easily. You don't have to update in drive > download to a PDF > update the asset in Dock.

To help keep things clean, Dock does not automatically sync updates from your drive. These need to be manually pushed — and we'll show you how to do so in the steps below!

Step 1: Navigate to the asset in the content library.

Here you'll see the ability to download the content, view it in Google directly, and Resync.

Step 2: Click Resync. This will pull over the current state of the file from Google Drive.

Once you do that, you're all set! Any Workspaces this content is in will also reflect the most up-to-date version.
