Google and Mavenlink are a perfect project management pair. With this integration, you can access your Google Drive from any project; this means that any Google Drive file can be shared in a project’s workspace.
In addition, by integrating with applications such as Google Calendar and Google Tasks, you can synchronize project due dates and milestones with your calendar and your to-do list. Knowing what you need to do and when you need to do it ensures that nothing gets forgotten.
In order for you and your team to seamlessly integrate with Google’s collection of cloud-based applications such as Drive, Contacts, Calendar, and Tasks, you’ll need to configure your G Suite Settings, accessible from the Profile drop-down menu.
Select which G Suite apps you want to integrate and click Activate.
Be sure to grant Mavenlink permission to access your Google Account. You can check which apps you have connected to your account by clicking here:
This page also allows you to see what parts of your account Mavenlink can access. For example, you can verify that Mavenlink has access to your basic profile information and the ability to view and manage Google Drive files.
You can also completely integrate with Google through the G Suite Marketplace so that Mavenlink is accessible from your Google Apps launcher.
If your company has already performed an account-wide G Suite integration, then your Mavenlink account is automatically integrated with Google. For more information, please see the Account-Wide Integration section below.
WHAT THE MAVENS KNOW
To use Google Drive assets associated with a different email address:
1. Go to Mavenlink’s Email Settings and Add the new address.
2. Look for a verification email in your inbox and click the link in that email.
3. Back in Email Settings, use the Google radio button to associate the new email address.
4. Click Update Emails.
5. To restore the account default Google address, click the Switch to account-wide Google integration link in your G Suite Settings.
If you choose to integrate your entire account via the G Suite Marketplace, the integration is automatically performed for all users, eliminating the need for each employee to do so independently.
In addition, an account-wide G Suite Marketplace integration enables Google’s single sign-on (SSO) solution. This reduces the number of passwords users need to remember; your members can securely move between services uninterrupted without specifying credentials each time. This applies to all current and future Mavenlink account members as long as they have an email address that matches your domain name.
Also, a Mavenlink shortcut will be added to each user’s Google Apps launcher.
