To have files sync to connected Cloud platforms the invite must have the option to use the cloud enabled. Usually FileInvite will do this automatically to your default Cloud provider, but if not this guide will step through how to set this up on a new invite, as well as show you how to change the default cloud option for users with multiple cloud platforms.


  • Different users will have different cloud settings, so ensure the Cloud Integration has been setup for the User. For Google Drive click here to see how.

  • Cloud Sync will be enabled for new Invites by default if a default Cloud Integration has been turned on. Preexisting invites will need to be connected manually. See here for how.

πŸ”’Note: Cloud Storage syncing is available on the Pro and Multi plans. Find out more about the different FileInvite plans.

3. Select Additional Settings immediately below the main details of the Invite, this is where you choose your Cloud Integration
