Turns Notion into a Drive

I'm thinking about taking my documents out of Google Drive and putting them in Notion, as native files and not attachments. Do you think Notion is a safe environment for this? Turns it into a "drive"?

May I ask why you're planning to do that? Safety reasons? If it's not for safety reasons, put your documents in Dropbox and use my Zapier connection, to transfer its sharelink to Notion. (guide is in German, but it's a step by step guide)

I disagree, the point (and the question) is to stop using Google Drive and start using Notion for documents, making an app switch. Having to use 3 applications, Notion, Zapier and Google Drive instead of just one of them is actually worse for this.

Just my thoughts. :)

The disadvantage of just using Notion for documents is, that you cannot work collaborative inside of a document. To do so, you need to download the document, work on it and upload it again.

Plus after building the Zapier connection you don't have to use Zapier anymore.

PS. If @rafadecw doesn't want to work on that documents anymore, I agree on you and saving it inside Notion is totally fine.

It is, move the documents you need to Notion and manage them there. There is no need to have external files for each thing when you can have everything organised and together in Notion.
