Step 1: Check the viewer permissions of your document

Please note that if the settings are not changed for anyone with the link to access as viewer, the reviewers will be requested to log in to google to open the file and it needs to be shared with them. Additionally, if settings are not changed to viewer rights the reviewers might be able to edit the document.

Open your Google document and click “Share” in the corner of your screen.

Under “Get link” click “Change”.

Step 2: Copy a link to your Google document

Make sure that anyone with the link can access with viewer permissions and then click “Copy link”.

Step 3: Import your file into Filestage

Go to Filestage and click “Upload file”, then select “Import website”.

Paste the link to your Google document and click “Import website”.
