Migrating assets from Google Drive to Dash might seem daunting; however, Dash is here to make it simple. As an admin user, all you have to do is connect your Google Drive account to Dash!
Step 1: Prepare your files within Google Drive
Take a look at your existing folder structure in Google Drive and come up with a strategy on how you would like to organise your files moving forward with Dash.
💡You can easily re-organise your assets once they are in Dash, but it is a great idea to have an initial structure before the import.
Step 2: Connect a Google Drive account to Dash
Select the + Add Files button in the upper right-hand corner and select Google Drive.
🎉 You can now browse your Google Drive files within Dash.
Step 3: Copy files to Dash
Select the files you want to upload into Dash. If you select a folder in your Google Drive, any subfolders will also be created when copied into Dash.
Once you're finished with your selection, click Copy to Dash.
💡 You can click away whilst the import is in progress, and return later by clicking + Add files at any point.
Once complete, your assets will be searchable and browseable in Dash 😁 Don't forget to bulk edit and add tags to boost their searchability.
💡If you select assets rather than folders from your google drive, you can find them in Dash in the filter bar under Folders > Not in any folders
