Google Docs Size Limits and Workaround

Google Docs has long been our preferred method for storing files related to AddressTwo accounts.  But, you might find that on occasion, the file-size limitations of the Google API prevent you from storing large files (over 10mb) on an Account in AddressTwo.  Fortunately, there is a simple workaround.

First of all, since the file-size limit is only imposed on 3rd party applications like AddressTwo, this means that you can indeed still upload the file directly to Google Docs.  To do this, go to docs.google.com and log in.  You can place the file wherever you choose, but AddressTwo defaults to placing uploaded files in the "AddressTwo_Projects" folder. 

Once uploaded, wherever you upload it, you can then link this file back to the desired AddressTwo account using the "link existing file" link.
