 Good Day Bushra

I would love your assistance in understanding why this feature requires that we have Google Drive and Docs enabled on the Org? For us, this defeats the purpose. Box is our document management system, so therefore, we do not allow our users to access Drive or Docs (these are linked feature).

When we have tried to implement this feature, we get the error "We are sorry, but you do not have access to Google Docs Editors. Please log in to your Admin Console to enable Google Docs Editors"

This seems very counter intuitive to me and I would love to see you all make this feature work without the customer having to allow their users to utilize another document management system.

If this is a requirement, as an organization my preference would be to just migrate from Box to Drive since I would need to manage Drive anyways if I have to turn it on for my users.

Appreciate any feedback or thoughts on this.
