Integrate Google Drive™ documents to Geocaching.com to enhance notes

Image from store Geocaching.com Google Drive™ Notes
Description from store This extension will fully integrate a Google Document into Geocaching.com. This way you can make advanced notes for puzzles and multies. You can create a new document from the Geocache page itself in geocaching.com with a single click! You can use (styled) long text, tables, images, just like in Office. You can make use these on the go, with an internet connection, or even make them available offline with the Google Drive app. It will automatically create a folder named "Geocaching" inside your Google Drive.

  • (2019-07-31) Locke HL: Echt geniale, nützliche Erweiterung, die den Bereich der Personal Note quasi auf unendlich erweitert. Und auslagert zu Google-Diensten, denn wenn bei geocaching.com ein Malheur passiert, sind alle Personal Notes weg; mit dieser Erweiterung nicht. Und der Entwickler ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit und setzt Verbesserungsvorschläge um! Absolut empfehlenswert!!!
  • (2018-08-23) Waltraud Buckel: einfach GENIAL Danke für die Mühe, die man hier reinsteckt!
  • (2018-08-09) Maurice Schaafstra: Werkt sinds kort niet meer. jammer!!!!
  • (2015-01-07) Jeffrey Popp: Use it a lot for puzzles, especially ones in progress. Sometimes it is a bit on the slow side to load and/or edit but that may simply be a connection or bandwidth issue. Happy to have this available. Thank you!
  • (2014-08-19) Matthias Eckert: Gute Idee, aber in der Praxis nicht zu nutzen, da die Erweiterung viele andere Teile der Webseite überlagert (weil sie immer als oberstes Element angezeigt wird).
  • (2014-07-12) Valere Huveneers: Ik gebruik deze extensie al enkele maanden. Heel handig, want al mijn opgeloste mysteries kan ik nu op mijn smartphone lezen, en ook offline, waar ik geen internetverbinding heb.
  • (2014-01-24) Markus Thomaßen: Gefällt mir sehr gut.
  • (2013-09-03) ian newitt: awesome
  • (2013-08-05) Rik van der Veeken: it does exactly what is says it does... you can add personal notes, which are saved as a Google Drive Document. this even allows regular members to add (unlimited characters) notes!

    Unfortunately, the Drive Notes are no longer displayed on the cachepage. I have deactivated all other scripts and also all adblockers, but this does not change the problem... too bad, hopefully you can get it running again :) Google Chrome for Mac, Version 80.0.3987.132 (Offizieller Build) (64-Bit) Thx for your great work

  • (2019-03-19, v: Auld Pharrrt: I am having an access problem from my geocaching account to my Google drive account
    This is all I get on cache pages ... I have clicked the Authorize button but my google drive is NOT the same email address as my geocaching account. Error getting access to Google Drive. The first time you need to use the "Authorize Google Drive" button.
  • (2019-02-21, v: Melissa Cullen: Issue with Koala Geocaching not working
    Just getting the Koala symbol in the top corner and nothing else. Is there an issue at the moment?
  • (2018-12-14, v: Markus Traut: Supporting Sheets
    I would like to see a feature to add a Google Sheet document. I often use such sheet docs to make mystery calculations. This would be realy nice :-)
  • (2018-08-21, v: Felix Hasselmann: How do I change the Google Drive
    I'd like to change the goggle drive binding to another google account. jow do I change that ? I searched for a kind of settings page but i could find one.
  • (2016-01-28, v: Charlie Wynn: Can I still type a cache note to view in a geocaching mobile app?
    I think the intro app doesn't let you view your personal notes, but the $10 version and some 3rd party ones let you view that cache note. Would this wipe that out?
  • (2015-10-05, v: Raymond Culp Jr.: field notes
    How do I get my field notes off my GC Expolrist to my computer I just loaded windows 10 and am having a problem with it
  • (2015-06-16, v: Lena Wesström: försvunnit
    Måste vara alla it-supporters favoritfråga: "Det försvann" Installerade detta tillägg, men började inte använda. Installerade idag på jobbet och insåg hur bra det var och vill ha hemma också. Då är det borta från geocaching.com. När jag försöker hämta säger datorn att jag redan har lagt till det (för det har jag ju). Men var är det då?
  • (2015-05-14, v: Bas van der Veeken: Feature request
    Hi, Nobody has any feature request of problems??!! :P Yes, this extension is still going strong! Koala
