How to Sync Google Drive to Your iFax Web Account?

In just a few steps, you will be on your way to syncing all of your iFax documents to your Google Drive account. It starts with choosing the right plan as the said feature is only available to Pro users.

Step 1: Open your iFax Web dashboard. You can access iFax Web using any web or mobile browser.

Step 2: On the left side of your dashboard screen, click the hamburger (vertical dots) icon next to Folders. Click Sync to Google Drive. Select the account that you want to link. When asked whether you want iFax to access your Google Account, click Allow.

Step 3: Once linked, a popup message will show up with a notice about your sync being in progress. Click Okay.
Note that the time for sync completion may vary. If you’re not managing faxes in high volume, the entire process may only take less than a minute.

Step 4: Create a new synced folder. You may access your new folder by clicking the drop-down icon next to Folders. After creating a new synced folder, it will automatically appear on your Google Drive account. Just look for the iFax folder under My Drive.


Keep in mind that your synced folder is where you can move and store all of the documents that you want to sync across all your devices. You can also create/remove sub-folders inside your synced folder, or unsync the whole folder completely when you no longer need it.

Step 5: Send faxes directly from your synced folder. Once you’ve successfully synced your iFax Web account to Google Drive, you can choose to store all your incoming and outgoing fax messages in your synced folder. You can also delete and add new folders.
