How do I Use zDrive for Mac?

This article provides an overview of zDrive and the already powerful document management system of Zola Suite. The system keeps documents organized and makes it easy to search, sort and review. zDrive allows you to edit these documents and save them with greater ease! You will no longer have to download the document to make changes and upload a new version. With zDrive, simply open the document by clicking on the "Open with zDrive" button that displays when hovering over that document.

Here’s how it works:

  • Download and install the zDrive for Mac app (you’ll just have to do this once on each computer). Once the program is downloaded you will use your Zola Suite login and password.

  • When editing a document saved in Zola Suite’s document management tool, click on “Open in zDrive” which will open the file in the associated program on your Mac (Word, Excel, Acrobat, etc.)

  • You will then see a pop-up that asks if you would like to set viewing these documents defaulted to zDrive. To open documents you will need to click on a pop-up. 

  • This document will be available to edit when pop-up comes up to open the file.

  • Edit the file on your computer with the associated application and save it. Simply click on the save icon or use comand+S to save. A new version of the file will be saved automatically to your Zola Suite account; no uploading required!

    • If you are using zDrive for the first time since restarting the editing program you are using, you will be asked to log in. Be sure that you are using your Zola Suite username and password. You can also access your user settings from your Mac toolbar.

zDrive must be activated on your account before it can be used. It is only available at the EnterprisePlus subscription level. Please reach out to your Account Executive for more information about getting activated.
