How can I share data from my Google Drive?

First you need to be sure that the Google Drive file or files are publicly visible or accessible to anyone who has the link. For instructions on how to change, follow the walkthrough slides below.

You can click on ‘Add Data’ and choose the option to import files from ‘Google Drive’. A ‘Google Drive’ pop-up will show and help you choose the file/files from your account. The files will not be copied into HDX. Instead, the HDX ‘Download’ button will always direct users to the live version of the Google document.

The HDX Resource Picker for Google Drive will only have access to your list of Google Drive files when you are choosing Google Drive resources through the HDX interface. You can revoke this permission at any time in Google Drive’s App Manager. However, this will not change the visibility of the Google Drive resources already created on HDX.
