I want to sync PDF files via Google Drive however this method renders a low res PDF and the important copy that I need the reviewer to approve is not readable.

Is there a way to stop this or is loading the attachments manually the only option?

Airtable will only sync thumbnails, probably to ensure that customers don’t accidentally exceed the Airtable storage limits.

The best solution is to just let people click on the Google Drive link itself.

Otherwise, if you want to automatically sync the full-sized files into Airtable, then you would need to set that up yourself by using Make’s Google Drive integrations & automations.

There is a small learning curve with Make, which is why I created this basic navigation video to help. I also provide the links to a few other Make training resources there as well.

p.s. If you have a budget for your project and you’d like to hire an expert Airtable consultant to help you with any of this, please feel free to contact me through my website: Airtable consulting — ScottWorld
