Google Drive

This is the procedure for integration with Google Drive. By integrating with Google Drive, we will obtain information on files that are publicly available.

・Account information will not be obtained.
・We will retrieve the names and links of files that are public (shared) on the shared drive (including My Drive). Data will not be synchronized with MoneyForward Admina.
・To view files, you must have the Admin role in Admina.About Admina admin users: What is the difference between roles?
