GreenTools for Google Apps (G4G) v15.20 Now Supports Shortcuts

GreenTools for Google Apps (G4G) v15.20 now supports the option to work with shortcuts, mainly retrieving their ID, or their target ID (the object they reference) when using the g4gdrv_getID() function.  By default the target ID will be returned, but if you want to retrieve the ID of the actual shortcut, that is also possible by setting the "shortcut_id_type" value to "shortcut".  This value defaults to "target" if not set.

Google rolled out their shortcuts "feature" a while back.  For some it seems to be ok, for others it seems to be a headache and caused issues and is heavily criticized and some claim it ruined Shared Drives.  But, we're hoping that adding the ability to work with shortcuts will make it a little easier should you run across shortcuts in your Google Drive.

The main issue it may cause with G4G is if you're used to specifying a fully qualified path to perform a function, if the path contains any shortcuts the option will fail.  Instead, you will need to retrieve the ID of the shortcut manually in a program using the g4gdrv_getID() function.  

In the sample source physical file QRPGLESRC in the G4G library contains new an updated source code to show how to perform a variety of options using shortcuts, shared drives, etc.

The G4G documentation has also been updated.

As always, feel free to contact us with any questions.
