Help setting up Snapshot Pro with Google Drive

Hi, having some trouble setting up the snapshot pro with google drive.

this is the settings page and the instructions up to step 4
this is what i see in the credentials page on google side. - and this is the drop down -

Perhaps some clearer instructions can also be added to the plugin ?

    Hello Tom,

    I hope you're well today and thank you for your question!

    I hope those in-plugin docs would be updated soon as developers know already that Google Console has changed but just to make sure I'll let them know again.

    As for setting this up, let's go through this step-by-step. I think it would be easier if you could just start again from the beginning:

    1. Create a new Project in Google Developers Console
    2. Enable Drive API
    3. Go to "Credentials"
    4. From the "New Credentials" list select "Oauth client ID"
    5. You will be prompted to go to "Consent screen", so go there
    6. Enter "Product name shown to users" (use any name you wish, it's only you who'll be able to see it); save
    7. You'll be prompted to select "Application type" - select "Web application"
    8. A form will show up:
    - put any name in "Name" field
    - copy "Redirect URI" from your dashboard's "Snapshot" settings
    - paste that URI into the "Authorized redirect URIs" field and hit "Create"

    9. A message will popup including your "Client ID" and "client secret"; copy those and paste into associated fields in Snapshot's destination settings (and save settings)

    That's pretty much it :slight_smile: Apart from this you will (optionally) need to define "Directory ID" but an "in-plugin" guide on this is up to date and accurate.

    I hope that helps!
