Display and edit file properties from Google Drive

With the AODocs Smartbar installed, you can display and edit the properties of your AODocs documents directly from Google Drive.

Alternatively, you can:

  • open your file in the Google Docs, Sheets or Slides editor and click the Show / Edit the properties & workflow button

    Note: If you're using the legacy Smartbar, when you have a pending workflow action to perform on the document, a red dot appears on the Show / Edit the properties & workflow button. The red button isn't yet available in the new Smartbar.
