Content Integration - Google Drive


Moveworks enables the Copilot to answer questions directly in chat, by understanding the questions and responding instantly with answers containing the most relevant snippets, links to files in the knowledge base, or links to external articles taken from trusted knowledge sources. The Moveworks Google Drive integration is leveraged to import content into the Moveworks Enterprise Cache so it can be searched by the Moveworks bot in real-time.

Moveworks supports the following object types, with permissions (mirrored):

  • Documents - Google Docs*, doc, docx
  • Presentations - Google Slides, ppt, pptx
  • PDFs

*Note: Legacy support by Answers did not include permissions

Legacy - Formatting Guidelines for Answers Google Docs

Moveworks recommends using the Google Drive native headings for the best performance.

Please note that images, tables, text formatting, lists or other multi-media formats will not be rendered in chat. Instead, the user will be able to click the article and view the source article in Google docs.

Legacy - Architecture for Answers Google Docs

  1. Moveworks identifies candidate files to ingest

  2. Moveworks extracts the file as HTML and produces snippets
