Google Drive folders and PDF documents are a great way to share information between many people at once, making them a powerful tool to engage with customers and provide them with insights, energy efficiency tips, utility bills and more. 

Making this information available directly on your users’ dashboard can add even more value, as having everything in one place can help the customer make a sense of the data and information shared with him/her.

In order to make this possible please follow the steps below to embed your Google Drive folders and documents respectively:
