360 Sync With Google Drive

Very often I’m asked to demo the connectivity between the 360 Sync document repositories like Box, Dropbox, Egnyte, Google Drive, and Sharefile. You can refer back to the Applied Software blog for other videos and blog posts that show exactly how 360 Sync works with each solution.

In this installment, we’ll take a look at using 360 Sync with Google Drive.

First things first, you’ll have to download the Google Drive app and install it on your computer.

One thing to note about connecting to Google Drive: you must first create the folders you want to sync with inside of Google Drive if you’re trying to download files. Once you’ve created the folders or subfolders that you want to drop files into, 360 Sync functions exactly the way you’d expect it to with Windows or any other point solution like BIM 360 or Procore.
Just set up your configuration by selecting the folder or subfolder you want to move files from and then select the folder you want to move the files to. If you want to go to or from multiple places, it’s easy to do – just create another mapping inside of your configuration.

Project setup and configuration are easy.

From there, you run 360 Sync. Remember, you can run it one of three ways:
1. By copying the execution command and pasting it into a DOS prompt.
2. By clicking “Create Launch Shortcut” and then clicking the shortcut icon on your desktop.
3. By scheduling your sync to run automatically.

So that’s it. Now you can start syncing between Google Drive and everything else you connect to automatically using 360 Sync.
