Resources - Link to Google Docs

  • It would be useful if Resources Galleries, as set up on our internal (password protected) or external website, could support Linked Resources, especially to Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides. The APP is mainly for current community members who could therefore access a wide range of documents, not only photos.

    Update: The app now supports external resources added to Resource galleries that are set to display in the app.

    Pressing on an external resource opens that resource's link in a browser. This is true of Google Docs, as well as any external websites you might want to share as a Resource.

    Hi Francesca,

    We understand that many of our schools host their documents outside of Finalsite, which is why we created the external resource type in the first place. This is definitely a feature we're be looking at over the coming months to figure out the best way to link off to external resources from within the app.

    Hi Francesca,

    I just split this into two separate ideas. Swiping through photos can be found here: https://finalsite.aha.io/ideas/APP-I-20
