Google Drive is directly integrated into Butter to make it easy to share Docs, Sheets, and Slides with all participants. More importantly, it makes it easy for everyone to collaborate on them — you don't need to share a link that everyone needs to open or log in to see. Just share and collaborate. 💫

🎥 Video explainer: Google Drive in Butter
Here’s a 90-second tour of how to collaborate on Google Slides in Butter.
Opening a Doc
Simply head to the Integrations panel on your right and click the Drive icon. From there you can create new Docs/Slides/Sheets or find existing ones.
Pro tip: Butter keeps track of the docs you use and saves them under Recently opened so you can easily access them across all your rooms.
Having multiple Docs open
Need to access different docs in a single workshop? Effortlessly scroll through different files while you're on Butter! You just need to open the different files and switch over to the right tab to access it and participants will only see the Doc that is currently active.
How participants see the Docs
Participants will only see the Doc that you have actively selected. They don't see the Tabs, which means you can safely plan all your activities and queue them in the Tabs without participants knowing.
Setting sharing permissions
Once you have a Google doc open on Butter, everyone can start collaborating in real-time.
- Creating a new Doc will set the sharing permission to Anyone with the link.
- Opening an existing Doc will inherit the sharing permissions already set so the sharing permissions might need to be updated on your end.
To update sharing head to the document in your Google Drive account and set the access settings right (i.e. Viewer, Commenter, Editor access for anyone with the link) to unlock the collaborative juices!
Google Drive is just one of the many integrations in Butter. Here’s an overview of all of them:
