Works the same as the File List widget, but instead of targeting a directory on the website, it targets a folder on Google drive. This is a popular widget and recommended over the file widget since it allows you to manage the docs via Google drive and you won't have to login to the website to make any changes. Please note that any content displayed by this widget will not be indexed or searchable by search engines.
Recommendation - If you are using the Google Drive embed Widget in conjunction with the Rows widget, we recommend not using anything smaller than either the 1/4 x 3/4 or the 3/4 x 1/4 structures. This allows for correct spacing and a cleaner look for the File List widget.
Note - As additional items are added to the Google Drive, the Google Drive Embed widget may need to be resized so that all of the items we be shown. This can be done by editing the widget and entering a size in the Height field. By default the widget is set to a height of 200.
