Google Drive integration

Sharing documents and files is an essential part of collaboration and team work. You feedback and support was amazing! Thank you. Today we are adding another simple way to keep files and tasks together – Google Drive integration.

Google Drive is a file storage and synchronization service, which enables cloud storage, file sharing, collaborative editing and keeps track of all your changes with revision history.

Google Drive module is just $2.99 for unlimited projects and users. Upon subscription completion it will be enabled in all your projects. For projects you are invited to or project groups you are administrator – please ask a project owner to upgrade to enable it.

Once installed you will see an additional option to attach from Google Drive.

attach_google_doc

Sign in to a Google account (we provide an option to switch Google accounts on the next step).

sign_in_google

Now you can:

(1) Switch Google accounts

(2) Use filters

(3) Change between thumbnail and list views

(4) Search your files (check Google documentation for tips and tricks)

(5) Select one or multiple files and add them to Freedcamp.

google_drive_file_selector

Your files will remain stored on Google Drive. Make sure that you shared them on Google Drive with your team.

Attached documents contain tiny Google Drive icon and option to open them on Google Drive.

attached_google_drive_documents

Google Drive files won’t count towards your file storage space in Freedcamp, however you can see all files attached from Google Drive in Files section.

Google_files_Files_application

Finally we would like to list all Google integration options you can find in Freedcamp:

• To link you Google account and access Freedcamp without a need to type your credentials, if you are logged in into your Google account, or use Google single sign-on otherwise. You can always use your Freedcamp’s user name or email and a password to login as well.

• To sync your Freedcamp’s calendar to your Google calendar.

• To attach Google Drive files to TODOs, Discussions and comments inside Freedcamp. Please login into your account, visit Marketplace and install Google Drive module.

Quick Tip: how to export your data to XLS file

Now you can export your TODO’s, Milestones and Time Tracking records to XLS file to create custom reports or just print it for a meeting or a client meetup. We are about to add Milestones information into TODO’s export file as, as you know, TODOs and Milestones are finally work together.

For your piece of mind we also provide full data backups. Note that files are not included into backups now but we will add them very soon.

To-Do’s and Milestones

To-Do's and Milestones

To-Do’s and Milestones are two great applications used separately. With the two applications now connected, tracking projects is much more convenient.

We’re constantly improving the speed of Freedcamp and have made major strides in ensuring you are experiencing the fastest system possible.

To-Do’s, Milestones, and Time Tracking

Export Your To-Do's Milestones and Time Entries

You can now export your application data and manipulate it with your favorite CSV editor. You’re welcome!

Organize Files

Organize Files in Groups

Managing files can get out of hand. Now you can create groups for your files to keep them nicely organized.

Project Colors

Project Colors

Know which project you’re working on just by looking at the color. It doesn’t get easier than that.

Quick Tip: how to access deactivated projects

Want to look for a file, task or discussion in an inactive project (1) but don’t want to activate it back? Easy – just go to manage projects page (2) and use ‘View’ button (3). Only project owner and group administrators can access deactivated projects. All other users, even if they still have a link to a project bookmarked, won’t be be able to see deactivated projects.

Quick Tip: access inactive projects

Backup Your Data

We are offering a way to back your data offline. For example, you can always restore data if someone accidentally deleted an important project, task or discussion. We hope that it gives our users a feeling of security, but also a way to access your data in different ways.

backup_account_settings

Here I will explain how this process will work:

- Go to ‘My Account’ page (1)

- Click ‘Backup’ tab (2) and select subscription

- We do backups daily and we send an email with a link to download as shown below.

backup_email_notification

We store backups for one year from backup date. You can access and download all your backups from Backups tab on ‘My account’ page (3) and cancel your subscription any time (4).

All your project data are exported from Freedcamp into XML format.

We are planning to:

- add your files to backups

- make backups browsable offline

For feedback please contact our support or post on our feedback portal.

Easter Update

We launched a new update this past Sunday for Easter. It included a long list of small improvements and things you may never notice, however a few things stood out so I’d like to point them out.

  • No more generic avatars, from now on when you don’t supply a picture we will use your initials to generate an awesome colored graphic with them.
  • Calendar widget in Dashboard now lets you click and directly open the events you see for an upcoming date.
  • Bug Tracker now allows you to subscribe people to updates of an issue.
  • Wiki now supports attachments.
  • You can now add inline images to things besides comments like To-Do’s and Discussions.

These are the major changes for now. The next release we have cooking will be a very strong facelift of many important aspects of the app. Get ready, it is gonna look amazing.
