Google Docs

A Manifold instance must first be set up to integrate with Google Services before it can ingest Google Docs.

Once a Manifold instance is integrated with Google Services, the system can ingest any Google Doc that is publicly available or that has its permissions set so that anyone with the link can view it.

Google Doc Permissions

Structure, rendering (including indentation), tables, and figures that are part of the document will all transfer to Manifold in a way that is consistent with the source material, with the following exceptions, which Manifold will not honor:

  • Columns
  • Custom fonts
  • Page breaks
  • Bullet points. Text formatted as bullet points will come in as list elements, but they will appear without bullet characters.
  • Footnotes. Any footnote in the document will be transformed into an endnote, appearing at the end of the text section.
