Google Drive and Google Calendar Integration Authorisation

Here you can find all the details regarding the benefits of permitting or limitations of disabling these integrations depending on your platform usage

Google Drive and Google Calendar integrations are a great way to incorporate G Suite content into your Happeo environment. 

What are the advantages of enabling these integrations?

Enabling Google Drive and Google Calendar integrations will allow you to view content from these tools in Happeo.

Regarding Google Drive, below you can find some of the features that will be included in your Happeo environment once its integration is enabled:

  • Attach a Drive file to a post 
  • View files attached to a Channel through Drive
  • Utilise all Drive widgets within Pages such as folders, file lists, etc. 

    For Google Calendar, once the integration is enabled you can find the following attributes in your Happeo environment: 

    • View your Calendar in the Homepage
    • View Calendar events within Channels
    • Utilise all Calendar widgets within Pages

    What are the limitations of disabling these integrations?

    If Google Drive and Google Calendar are disabled or unauthorised you will not only not have any of the above features included in your Happeo environment but when you search something within your Happeo homepage, anything regarding Drive files or Calendar events will not appear in the ‘All’ tab.

    Additionally, when clicking on the ‘Files’ or ‘Calendar’ tab, you will find a message that either states that Drive or Calendar is disabled or unauthorised depending on your platform usage.

    G Suite Users

    For G Suite Users Google Drive and Google Calendar integrations are enabled by default and can be toggled off by navigating to User settings > Integrations.

    Alternatively, you can click here to view your integrations. 

    Please note that as you toggle off the integrations it will not remove the authorisation from Google directly. This needs to be done by you in your Google security settings. You can find these settings by navigating to your Google account > Security > Manage third-party access > Click on the integration you want to disable > Remove access. 

    Non-Google login users

    For non-Google login users (users who log in to Happeo with single sign-on) Google Drive and Google Calendar are not authorised by default and can be authorised by navigating to User settings > Integrations.

    Once this has been implemented, you can toggle on the integrations. 

    On the other hand, you can click here to view your integrations. 

    Accessing Google Drive and Calendar resources

    For both G Suite and non-Google login users, if you try to access Google Drive and Google Calendar resources a message will appear if one or the other is not authorised
