Thanks for sharing this information, Phil and also Third party integration is a major ask by customers for their document storage
No worries Siddharth. Our platform team is working on the document management service together with partners like Box, PeopleDocs, Google Drive and OpenText. The idea is to encorporate APIs from these partners in the document management service and via configuration enable the licensed partner's document storage products to be utilized by our customers.
