Where to Access Google Drive Documents

Sarah Jenkinson Nov 04, 2018 08:48AM PST

I've linked my Outline with my Google Drive but I'm not seeing where or how to access my Google Drive content from Outline. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks!

Hi Sarah,
thanks for your question. To access your Google Drive notebooks please tap + button and select Open From. Then you will need to link Outline to desired cloud storage. For more info please visit

Hi, yes, that's what I originally thought, but when I selected that dropdown menu Google Drive is not listed as one of the options.

The only options listed are:
- Local, Dropbox or Box
- iCloud
- WebDAV
- OneDrive
- Sharepoint Server
- OneDrive for Business
- Sharepoint Online

Am I missing something?

Hey Sarah, sorry for misunderstanding. The answer above works for iPad and iPhone. On your Mac there is another way round: You will need to install Google Drive client for mac, and lead Outline to its folder, just like you would open a notebook from the local folder on your mac. The client itself will sync your notes and Outline only open them from there.
