Attach cloud files like a pro

In this short post, we share some simple rules we try to follow to make reading in Freedcamp easier and files always at hand even when they are attached from cloud drives.

Freedcamp supports Google Drive, Dropbox, and OneDrive integrations.

We use Google Drive. Frequently, in our specifications, we use Sheets and Docs while still always referencing them back in Freedcamp Wikis (mostly). Referencing a wiki inside the Google Drive file is easy – just add a line with a link to a Freedcamp wiki. This will ensure you will not delete this Google file later and can always jump to a place where it was used in Freedcamp.
