New beta: Google Drive External Source Sync

Hi everyone! We’re excited to offer an invitation to try one of our newest features - the Google Drive External Source Sync.

With our Google Drive External Source Sync, you can sync metadata of Google Drive files into Airtable. Now, you can collaborate with others and maintain connections to canonical Drive files via linked records.

To sign up for the beta, fill out this quick form and click the link at the end. There will be a feedback link as well. Please note that this feature will only work if you’re on a Pro or Enterprise plan.

Thanks, and let us know if you encounter any issues!


Hi @Annie_Cheng, I tried signing up for the beta and clicked on the link at the end of the form — but Google Drive still doesn’t show up as a sync option for me. I even logged out & logged in again to my Airtable account, but it still doesn’t show up.

Same thing on my end. The form might be where things are breaking up, it looks a bit rough around the edges.

Edit: nevermind that, see below:

Also, hasn’t the Box beta ended? I’m pretty sure the feature hasn’t been marked as experimental for weeks by now.

Hey @Annie_Cheng I’ve got the same problem…I’ve completed the form but don’t have access the Google Drive data source. Many thanks

I finally received access. Not sure when it happened, but it works now for me.

Hi everyone! After clicking the link at the end of the form, it usually takes a couple minutes for things to propagate on our end. Please also refresh the Airtable page or navigate to it in a new tab/window.

@Jonathan_Gaunt , let me know if you’re still not seeing Google Drive as a data source.

Thanks @Annie_Cheng - I’ve got access and it looks brilliant.

Anyone has any thoughts so far? My anecdotal experience: this is by far the buggiest Airtable beta I’ve participated in so far, think I started signing up for these around late 2020 or early this year. Granted, all of my attempted use cases have been rather demanding, file quantity-wise, but this still feels closer to an alpha than a beta.:man_shrugging:t2:

What sorts of bugs are you seeing? This beta has been working pretty well for me so far.
