Integrating MONESQ with Google Drive allows you to upload and manage firm and client files in either location and have them be visible in both.
How it works
MONESQ File Storage automatically creates client and matter folders and places any uploaded documents in those folders. By integrating with Google Drive, you can make all of these folders and files available anywhere you have access to Google Drive as well. You can set up one-way or two-way syncing. With one-way syncing, all of the folders and files created in MONESQ will be visible in Google Drive, but no changes made in Google Drive will be visible in MONESQ. With two-way syncing turned on, you can add, edit, or delete content in either platform and the changes will be visible in both places.
