How do Drive Shortcuts are handled?

Google has changed the way files/folders are shared, and now they have shortcuts, which are basically pointers.

Insync 1.x does not sync shortcuts; those files/folder are invisible for Insync. Does 3.x handle the new shortcuts?

Hi @ssardina,

We do not support this Google Drive feature yet, but our engineers are looking into this already. :slight_smile:

This is a much needed feature in order to be able to properly collaborate with multiple people. At the moment, there is no possibility to share a folder with multiple people

Totally agree. But it seems they have other bigger issues to deal with in 3.x

Which version are you using @silentdrummer? I am stuck with 1.5.7 as 3.x seems to not work well.

Any news on this? This is one of THE features that used to make Insync unique and so much better. Does version 3.x support that now or not yet?

This is super important as shortcuts completely change the syncing behavior in Insync. Is there any update on this?

Hi! My apologies for the lack of updates-- I’ll follow this up with our engineers and update this thread accordingly.
