Attach link to Google Drive files

I guess I misunderstood the way attaching files from Google Drive works. I assumed that when you select "from Google Drive" and then choose a file, Wrike created a link to that file on the shared drive. But it seems it downloads a copy of the file as it stands at that moment. Is this right? Why would this be the desired behavior? The entire point of using Google Drive is that files can be shared and updated over time.

Hi Claire Vannette!

I tested this functionality just in case, and here's what happened:

  1. I created a new Google Doc in my Drive.
  2. I attached it to the task.
  3. I opened the file in the task and edited it, then closed.
  4. I opened the file in my Drive and could see the edits I made before in the Wrike task.
  5. I edited the file again.
  6. I opened the file in the Wrike task again and could see the edits made in the Drive.

Is that not the behavior that you expected? Please let me know!

I don't think that's what's been happening to me. But right now, when I try to click on any file attached to a task, it won't open anything. I'm getting an error message from Windows. So I guess I need to resolve that first.

Hi Claire Vannette! I can see that our Support team has helped you with the attachments (though this is a workaround). Can you please let me know how it's going with Google Drive files now?
