Enable this custom feature to allow your clients to upload signed documents or other information directly to your Google drive account.



Please note!

  • This functionality is not fully supported in the admin application. If you are using it and need to create bookings from there please make file fields as optional as it is not currently possible to upload files in the application. However you will be able to see files names in already made appointments.
  • The uploaded file should be less than 5Mb size and cannot be archive or executable one.



How to use

1. Enable this option on your Custom features page -> Adding more to the Booking Website category.
