Export a document with the Google Docs Add-On

To export a document with the Google Docs Add-on, open the Cloudpress Add-On by clicking on the icon in the side panel.

You will see a list of all the accounts you connected to your Cloudpress account.

If you have not connected any accounts yet, refer to our Manage Connections documentation.

If you have previously exported the current document, the connections to which you have exported that document will be listed at the top under the Previously exported connections heading, with the remainder of the connections listed below that under Other connections.

To export to a specific account, click on the Export button next to the name of the account. The add-on will start the export by uploading the content to the Cloudpress servers. You will be navigated to a status page where you can see the export status.

The export status card displays the following information:

  1. The title of the document
  2. The status of the export
  3. The date and time the export was started
  4. Refresh button to refresh the status card
  5. A list of additional actions you can take

The export status will not automatically refresh, but you can click on the refresh button to retrieve the latest status. Once the export is complete, the status will be updated to Done.

The Actions section displays a list of actions that you can take and will depend on the export status as well as the type of connection.

You will always see the View log action regardless of the export status and type of connection. Clicking this action takes you to the export details page in the Cloudpress web application where you can view a log file for the export. If any errors occur during the export, this is a useful tool to try and understand the reason for the error and how to potentially fix it.

The screenshot above demonstrates an export that was done to WordPress. In this case, there are two additional actions; one that takes you to the edit screen in WordPress to make additional edits to the blog post and another that takes you to the published blog post on the connected WordPress website.

These additional actions only display once the export has been completed and be different depending on the type of connection.
