Google Drive is a cloud storage service that allows users to save files and access them from anywhere. From SKYVVA v2.48, we have the capability to allow the users to back up their data directly from Salesforce to keep on Google Drive. Besides sending data to google drive we can also read data from Google drive back to Salesforce. The user can transform their data to any file format such as CSV, XML, or JSON. They can save their data to Google Drive manually or automatically from our Control Board.
