Using the Google Drive Gizmo

You'll find the Google Drive Gizmo located with the rest of the gizmos in the GIZMOS tab on the standard content editor toolbar.

Once you find the Google Drive Gizmo, click once on the gizmo to "pick it up."  There is no need to click and drag the gizmo.  Clicking on it once will "pick it up."

After you have picked up the Google Drive Gizmo by clicking on it, you can place it anywhere in the portfolio page you have open by clicking once again to place it.

Navigate to where you would like the Gizmo to be placed and click again to "put it down" where you would like the document to be placed.

The first time you click to place the gizmo, you will have to give Foliotek access to your Google Drive account.

Google Drive Access

Once you access your Google Drive account, your documents will be available to place in the ePortfolio.  There will be two tabs.  My Drive is where you find any files you have uploaded.  The Shared With Me tab is for files others have shared with you.  You can add files from either tab to your portfolio.
