Do you use your Gmail Id as your main email Id and you receive a lot of email attachments which you will first have to download to the desktop and then open in the Google Docs. Are you tired of doing this double work of first downloading the Gmail’s attachments and then storing them in the Google Docs. If you are then I have got a Google Chrome extension named Gmail Attachments To Docs for you which will allow you to directly save the attachments from the email into the Google Docs.
After installing this extension in the Google Chrome you will see an extra link against each extension to save them in Google Docs i.e. save to docs. The documents will be saved one by one and not in a bulk manner. You will get Save To Docs link in Gmail after installing the Google Chrome Extension. The Save To Docs link will be present between the View and Download link with which you will be able to save the attachments in the Google Docs. After clicking on the Save To Docs link Gmail will process your request and a new tab will open which will give you the message that your file has been save to the Google Docs. The file will be saved with same name as it was in the attachment and the name of the sender will not be appended to the file name. The extension will help you to share multiple attachments with someone else, in case you don’t have the time to forward every mail which will clutter someone’s Inbox. Using the extension you can save different types of files into Google Docs also share them in a bulk manner with anyone you want.
This is where you will get the Save To Docs option when you will install the Gmail Attachments To Docs extension in your Google Chrome. After you install the Gmail Attachments To Docs extension you have to re login into your Gmail account to get this option. After you will re login into your Gmail account you will get the option for all the mail which will have the attachments. In case you don’t get this option after you re login in to your account also which happened with me once just refresh your page and the option will be there where it should be between View and Download link.
This is the message that you will get on a new page after you will save the attachment to your Google docs.
