Work with a shared drive

Many AppSheet users use a Google Drive as their cloud file system. 

Google Drive has a feature called a shared drive that allows a team of users to share a common cloud folder hierarchy. When appropriately configured, each user sees not only My Drive, but also one or more shared drives. AppSheet apps can also utilize data from a shared drive.

Use a spreadsheet from a shared drive

When choosing to add a spreadsheet as a table in your app, the Google file picker will automatically show you any available shared drives in addition to My Drive. Simply browse into a shared drive and select a spreadsheet. AppSheet will work seamlessly with that data.

Use a shared drive as the root folder of an account

Every AppSheet account has a Default folder path, which is defined on the My account > Settings page. The root folder path defaults to /appsheet/data

Every app created by your account results in a subfolder created within that root folder. For example, an application called MySales for user 123456 will result in a folder of the form /appsheet/data/MySales-123456.

This root folder path can be configured to use a shared drive. This is useful for managing many apps in a team. By ensuring that the application folders live in a shared drive, the organization can ensure that apps can be easily transferred and will continue to run, even if the original app creator leaves the organization.


For example, let us assume that there is a shared drive called MyTeamDrive associated with the Google Drive of the AppSheet account. The AppSheet root folder path can be configured as /[TeamDrive]MyTeamDrive/appsheetdata. When a new app is created in this account, it will have a folder called /appsheetdata/MySales-123456 created within the MyTeamDrive shared drive.
