U-M Slack: Integrating Dropbox and Google Drive Storage Apps


U-M Slack, Google Drive, Dropbox


Can I add or share files stored in Dropbox or Google Drive from within U-M Slack?


The Dropbox and Google Drive apps for Slack allow files stored and maintained in those services to be added and shared in U-M Slack. Workspace Admins can add the Dropbox and/or Google Drive apps to their U-M Slack workspace(s) as needed. These apps are available in the Slack App Directory and will be auto-approved when requesting to add them.

Please refer to the respective links below for more information on the Dropbox and Google Drive Slack apps, along with instructions on adding and using them. 

Additional Information

Note: The only exception to this policy is the Maize & Blue public workspace, where no apps can be requested or installed.
