Bitrix24's Seamless Drive Integration and Collaborative Editing Explained

Connect External Drives


Integrating Bitrix24 with external cloud storage services like OneDrive, Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, and Office365 simplifies document management significantly. This integration allows you to seamlessly access and utilize files stored on these platforms directly within your Bitrix24 account.

Given the vast number of users relying on cloud storage for their files, this feature is not just a luxury but a necessity for streamlining workflows. Typically, personal accounts are used to store files, which can lead to a lack of access rights, absence of organizational structure, and missing workflows. By uploading files to Bitrix24, they automatically integrate into your company's workflow with default access rights. For instance, when a marketing team member uploads a document from their personal Dropbox to the marketing group drive in Bitrix24, it inherits the access rights assigned to that drive or folder. Once uploaded, the document is indexed by Bitrix24's search function, making it easily accessible to those with the appropriate permissions.

Moreover, even after uploading documents to Bitrix24, you can continue to manage your files within your external cloud storage accounts. The “Get latest version” feature ensures that Bitrix24 always has the most current version of your document by comparing and updating it with the version stored externally, if necessary.


Collaborative Editing


For those who appreciate the power of collaborative editing, Bitrix24 has you covered with Bitrix24 built-in document editor, supporting all key formats, including docx, pptx, xls, ppt, pdf, and more. This allows multiple users to work on a document simultaneously, eliminating the need for external services.

Additionally, Bitrix24 supports document editing through Google Docs or MS Office Web App, offering flexibility in how you handle documents.

Control your documents from a unified dashboard, where you can monitor recent activities and modifications. Adjust access rights and activate document locking to safeguard files against unintended edits.

File Storage & Desktop App


The Bitrix24 desktop app excels in file management, designed for a smooth desktop experience, it enables fast responses to file comments, direct video calls from Bitrix24 chats, screen-sharing, and more.

Bitrix24 file storage system is designed to streamline your document handling processes, enabling you to create, edit, and distribute any work-related documents effortlessly. With its compatibility across both desktop and mobile platforms, and seamless integration with Google Docs and Office 365, Bitrix24 Drive stands out as an ideal solution for managing your projects.

The convenience of Bitrix24.Drive means you can say goodbye to the endless cycle of sending and resending updated document versions to team members. Instead, leverage our cloud storage to create, edit, and share files online, where updates are automatically synchronized across all user accounts.

Moreover, Bitrix24 Desktop app provides valuable insights into your document management activities, including a comprehensive history of uploads, the date of the last sync, and the remaining available space on your Bitrix24.Drive, ensuring you stay informed and in control of your digital workspace.



Conclusively, Bitrix24 represents the future of document management, where external cloud storage integration and collaborative editing converge to create a seamless, efficient, and productive work environment.
