VW Cloud Services and Google Drive

Recommended Posts

I have set up my VW Cloud Services account and linked it with my Google Drive.  There are some folders in my Google Drive that don't appear in the VW Cloud web browser.  I think it's because those folders were created by someone else.  Is there a workaround for this?

Hi @tpenna,

Vectorworks Cloud Services currently does not show files that are shared with you on third party integrated storages. We will investigate the possibility to add this feature. 


A workaround that I can think of would be to have the person who shared the file with you on Google Drive to also integrate with Vectorworks Cloud Services and share the file with you through VCS. This way, you will see the file in your Vectorworks Cloud Services' "Shared with me" folder.

Any luck in getting "Shared Drives" google workplace drives integrated with Cloud Services?

I would also like to know this.


With the below update from Dave Donley, i've come back to take a look at VCS,



As a practice, we have all our documents on GoogleDrive. For big projects that require project sharing, this is obviously an issue. A workaround for this is to have a free dropbox account, but this adds a bit more friction, spreads files out across multiple services and is very annoying when you bump up against the free limit.


Is there a way for VCS to access GoogleDrive Shared Drives and then administer the project sharing?
