Sharing options

Troubleshooting

Guests don't have permission to find attachments
Attachments are stored in Google Drive, so your guests don't automatically have permission to view your attachments. To give your guests access to the files, you can share each file from Google Drive
"Adding attachments has been disabled by your domain administrator" message
If your work, school, or organization turns off Drive sharing, you find the "Adding attachments has been disabled by your domain administrator" message. If you find this message, contact your admin.
I can’t find "Add attachment"

If your Google Drive isn't linked to the Google Account you use to create the event, you won't find Add attachment Add attachment.

To fix this, make sure:

  • The documents you want to attach upload to Google Drive.
  • You sign in with the same account that you use for Google Drive.
