Any local files you have on your local computer drive, you can attach them by dragging and dropping them directly onto the canvas. Also, all of the popular files will be able to be previewed inside the canvas. For instance PDF, audio and video files, Microsoft files, any text files, and design files, just to list a few.
Another way you can attach a local file onto the canvas is to click the "Upload files" option in the toolbar located at the left and select "Your computer" to upload.
Embedding a third-party app live link
Similar to the local file, once you got the link you'd like to embed in the canvas, you can use your keyboard "Ctrl + V" (or "⌘ + V" on a Mac) to paste the link onto the canvas directly.
You can also embed a third-party app document by clicking the "Upload files" option in the toolbar located at the left and selecting "Embed link". You can pick the third-party app you'd like to embed and enter the URL, but really you can just pick "Anything", enter the link, and hit embed.
For Google suite files, you can even create a new document directly inside the canvas by selecting the type of document you want to create first and clicking "Create new".
Because these links are live, once the link is embedded, any changes made inside the original file will be reflected on the canvas in real-time.
Troubleshooting & FAQ
Embedded Website Not Working
To make sure the website you want to use can be embedded, you must make sure that:
- It is an HTTPS site. Unfortunately, HTTP sites will not work due to security concerns.
- The website administrator allows embedding. If they do not, you will get a message saying "refused to connect" or something similar. You can test this here.
