How do I use the Google Docs integration?

This guide walks you through how to bring Clearscope functionality into your Google Docs.

A few pro tips before you get started:

  • Ensure you’re using the correct Google account that’s associated with your Clearscope account before you begin the install.

  • If you're accessing a shared Clearscope report without a Clearscope account, make sure you're signed in with the correct Google email address that has editing permissions for the associated Google document before you begin the install.

What you need for Clearscope’s Google Docs integration:

1. A shared Clearscope report

2. Google Drive account

3. Google OAuth capabilities

4. Desktop browser

5. G Suite marketplace settings enabled in G Suite admin console

6. If the drafting process has already started in a Google Doc, you must have editing permissions for that specific document to effectively use the add-on.

How do I find the shared report link?

Clearscope reports must be toggled to “Shared” to work with the Google Docs add-on.

Clearscope reports can be “shared” by clicking on the dropdown next to a report and toggling the share link.

Enable shared link connected to a Content Report

Sharing a Clearscope report makes it accessible to anyone with the link (think of it like a shared Google Doc).

Anyone with a shared Clearscope link only has access to the shared report with no user permissions to do anything else on your account.

Clearscope admins can make any new Clearscope report automatically “shared” by visiting their organization settings.
