Embedded Drive Folders
Folders from Google Drive can be embedded into a Google Site. This is an efficient way to manage attachments, documents and files that are relevant to a particular page of a Site. Individual documents can be embedded into a page, but if you want to attach several documents the procedures are slightly different. There are a few ways to add attachments to a Google Site page:
  1. Change the Page Settings for each page to allow for attachments to be added.
  2. Make the page a File Cabinet and upload individual files.
  3. Add direct hyperlinks for each Drive document.
  4. Embed documents one at a time.
  5. Use the Insert >> Folder menu to add an entire Drive folder to the page using the Folders Gadget.
The Folders Gadget method is probably the most efficient. This will allow you to:
  • easily manage attachments in Drive rather than in the Sites page
  • apply immediate updates to your page attachments
  • keep your Site's file size small
  • add multiple folder gadgets to the same page
Watch the videos below to see how this is done. Scroll down this page to see the examples.
