We spend a lot of time attaching documents, sharing images, and searching through a sea of files to figure out where we’ve stored what. Imagine if all of that could happen from one place. With the attachment feature, you can create, revise, store, and share important documents right from GQueues.

Activate attachments

Having one central location to create and store attachments can save a lot of time and hassle. Whether you’re tracking assignments and due dates as a busy college student or collaborating with your team at work, you want to reduce the amount of effort it takes to access important information. Attachments are here to help.

When you’re just getting started, you’ll need to activate attachments on your account. If you've already installed the GQueues for Google Workspace Add-on, this step is done for you!

First, click the paperclip icon and select your desired attachment type, then connect your account and give GQueues permission to integrate with Google Drive.

Activate Attachments and integrate with Google Drive

Attach files to tasks

Choose files from Google Drive

Hover over the task and click the paperclip icon or click the Attach button to open the attachment dropdown menu.

Attach a file directly to the task

If you already have your file saved in Google Drive, choose the Select from Drive option to navigate to your file and select the file you want to attach.

Even if you change where your file is saved in Google Drive later, GQueues will update based on those changes, so you don’t have to do any extra work 😉

Drag and drop files onto your tasks

Attach files from your computer by dragging and dropping them to a task. When you drag the item over, the task you’re attaching to is highlighted so that it’s clear exactly where it’s going.

Paste images from your clipboard

When you take a screenshot to your clipboard or copy an image from the web or your computer, you can paste it directly into a task and it will be added as an attachment.

To paste the image, click in the task title or notes and type ctrl + v on a PC, or command + v on a Mac.

You’ll be prompted to name your attachment before it’s saved to your task.

Create new files

You can also use the attachment feature to create a new document right from your task. This makes tracking changes and completing tasks a breeze.

To create your new attachment, click the paperclip icon and Attach and select the type of file you want to create from the dropdown menu. You can choose to create Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides.

Locate your attachments in Drive

If you attached a file that was already in Google Drive, it will be wherever it lives in Drive.

Any new files you create through GQueues or drag and drop onto a task will automatically get saved into a new folder in Google Drive called GQueues Uploads

Your attachments will be saved in a new folder in Google Drive.

You can go to your Drive and move the file, and your attachment will remain consistent so that you can stay organized with minimal effort. You can also choose to move or rename the GQueues Uploads folder if you'd like.

Your Docs, Sheets, and Slides will attach directly to your Task.

Preview your attachments directly from GQueues.

View attachments on a task

Once you attach your file, you can open the attachment from your task by clicking on the file name. You can open them and make edits right from GQueues knowing that all changes are being saved across the board.

Working with attachments allows you to create, store, and share important files with ease. Don’t waste another minute searching for where you saved that important document. With attachments, you can access everything you need to get it all done.
