As an all-in-one and data-driven app for teams, Slingshot is the only workspace that brings together all the insights, information options, and tools your team needs to unlock its full potential. Collaborating in context and with minimal disruptions is achieved simply: by making chaos in file organization obsolete and bringing all project assets in one place. Content within Slingshot is stored and shared in a blink of an eye, and searching for files in various places is made obsolete, so teams can focus on the essential work instead of wasting time.

For your team’s convenience, Slingshot was built on top of Office 365 and Google Suite making it the perfect tool to integrate right into your existing tech stack. Have access to all your content at your fingertips by connecting to Google Drive, OneDrive, Box, Dropbox, or SharePoint. So here’s a quick overview on how to use these options within the app to their full potential and bring forth quick productivity flow for your team.

Personal Cloud Storage

From within the Home area of Slingshot in the Content tab, you can connect easily to any of the cloud storage providers that you use by selecting your provider and logging in. If you logged in with your Office or Google account to create your Slingshot account, that respective account will be added for you out of the box.

Once added you can use the files and folders within your cloud providers to:

• Pin to boards in Slingshot
• Attach them to tasks
• Attach and send in chat

Through using these optiоns, all your team’s content files stay in one place and are shared within seconds on a task level, so they are later easily found in their latest version.

Workspace Cloud Storage

And there is more. In addition to having all your cloud accounts readily available to pin inside Slingshot, you can also add connections and permissions at the workspace level.

Adding connections and permissions within a workspace will give everyone in it access to the documents within this account and allow others to pin from this location as well.

There are many use cases where this can be very useful. However, you want to be careful not to connect your entire personal storage to a specific workspace.
