Overview

You can create a Destination Google Drive Connector to write CSV files (by default) or JSONL files to an Goole Drive folder using your Google account. We do not currently support Shared Drives.
To set up this Connector, your Google account will need access to the Google folder you are connecting to.
Supported file formats: We only write to CSV or JSONL files. We cannot write to a Google Sheet using a Google Drive Connector. To write to a Google Sheet, please set up a Google Sheets Connector.
If you have multi-factor authentication enabled for your Google account, you may need to recreate the Connector when the authentication expires. Re-authentication for existing connections is coming soon.
