When opening a doc whose workspace is backed by Google Drive, you may see a prompt like this:
Since the doc's permissions live in Google Drive, you need to grant Google Drive access to Coda to allow us to authorize access to the doc. When you proceed to the Google sign-in page, you'll see something like this:
"View and manage Google Drive files and folders that you have opened or created with this app" and "Add itself to Google drive"
What it does: This inserts Coda into your Google drive setup. It means your Coda docs show up in your Drive list as if they were any other file. And you can also create a new Coda doc directly from Drive. This does not allow Coda to see any info about your other Google Drive files: only files and folders that you have opened or created with this app.
Why we do it: This lets you organize your Coda docs alongside Google docs and other file types, and keeps everything in one searchable place. It also means we're able to support searching for content in Coda from your Google Drive landing page.
