Link documents with Google Drive
Idea suggested by Asher Jacobsberg 8 years ago
Uploading scan of invoices, receipts, etc. is a great feature of Clearbooks, but I think it could be enhanced by linking it with Google Drive.
What I'm thinking of is:
Someone emails me an invoice
I click to save it to Google Drive (from within Google Apps - pretty widely used by small businesses).
When I enter the invoice in to Clearbooks and click 'Manage attachments' I am able to select files from my Google Drive.
This has the following advantages:
Google Drive now operates like Dropbox, so the file can be instantly backed up to several computers and accessed offline.
Files in Google Drive are fully searchable.
Clearbooks doesn't have to do the hosting of the files so there's no upload time.
You'd need some way to lock the file though, so a file that is attached to an item in Clearbooks couldn't be amened or deleted.
