The Cloudpress Google Docs Add-on allows you to configure various aspects of how content is exported to your Content Management System (CMS). This document explains these configuration options.
Open the Add-On settings
Open any document in the Google Docs editor, then open the Cloudpress Add-on by clicking on the Cloudpress icon in the side panel.
Click on the three dots menu icon in the top right corner, then click Settings.
1. Personal Access Token
The personal access token is required for the Add-on to communicate with the Cloudpress application. You can obtain your personal access token from your User Profile. Refer to the following documentation for more information:
Determines how Cloudpress should handle suggestions from other collaborators (which you have yet to accept or decline) when exporting the document. Let’s take the following example where a collaborator has suggested replacing the word “correct” with “wrong”.
- Export without suggestions: All suggestions from collaborators are ignored. In the example above, Cloudpress will export the text “This is correct”.
- Export with suggestions inline: All suggestions from collaborators are exported along with the original text. In the example above, Cloudpress will export the text “This is wrongcorrect”.
- Export with suggestions accepted: All suggestions are deemed to be accepted and exported instead of the original text. In the example above, Cloudpress will export the text “This is wrong”.
3. Use property table
The setting allows you to use a property table to set additional fields in your CMS when exporting content. This is useful when you want Cloudpress to update additional field values on your behalf, for example, the author or category of a blog post. You can find a detailed explanation of this feature in our documentation on setting additional field values with the Google Docs Add-on.
4. Auto-detect embeds
When this option is enabled, Cloudpress will attempt to convert standalone links in a single paragraph to the appropriate embed in your CMS. For example, if you have a paragraph containing only a link to a tweet, Cloudpress will convert it to the correct embed when exporting the document to your CMS.
5. Convert single-cell tables to code blocks
This option is useful when you want to include programming code snippets in your content. When enabled, Cloudpress will convert any single-cell table (i.e. a table with one row and one column) to a code block when exporting the document to your CMS.
