Using google drive to upload a document into discuto

Our latest Discuto update means you can now upload a document to Discuto directly from Google Drive. And to make things as simple as possible, you choose the source — your drive or your Google Drive.
Here are 3 steps showing you how:

1 - Start a new discussion

When logged in to Discuto, go to "My discussions", then "Create new discussion", and add:

  • Discussion title
  • Information for participants
  • Discussion end-date
  • The document

2 - Selecting the Document

When selecting the document, you can choose from different sources using the "Select the source to upload file". Click the Google Drive icon and you can browse your Drive system using a file picker application.

3 - Authorising Discuto to access Google Drive

To access your Google Drive with Discuto, you need to provide authorisation. Click the "Open from Google Drive" button and a new window will appear, prompting you to grant Discuto access.

Discuto can then provide you with the Drive picker, where you can browse, select and upload your document.
