Wide choice of page types
Automatically displays almost any type of content on Overdrive web pages
Overdrive does all the hard work with page types.
Simply select from a wide range of page types eg document, calendar, spreadsheet, video, dashboard etc. and Overdrive will automatically display your content in the best possible way on Overdrive web pages. Also, you’ll have different page configuration options according to the page type.
There are many examples of different page types in the menu.
Choice of styles, presentation and branding
Easily customise the appearance of an Overdrive site to suit your corporate needs
You can customise an Overdrive site to create an individual and professional site. Just use the admin options to upload your logo and choose from a range of themes or templates. In site settings you can select from various theme options including templates, navigation choices and search.
Pages can also be customised to your requirements with style sheets available.
If you decide that you want to develop a ‘showstopper’ of a site then there are additional options available to develop a bespoke version of Overdrive that is even more impressive.
Mobile-friendly and fully responsive
Great user experience across all devices
All Overdrive sites are fully responsive to different screen sizes so smartphone and tablet users will have a great experience. Overdrive works with Google Drive for Windows/Mac/Android/iOS, so you can update your site from any device, even offline.
Powerful search capabilities
Special search tools and filters let you find things quickly and easily
Overdrive’s Navigator search tool lets you find things quickly and easily – images, documents, videos etc.
User-friendly filters allow you to narrow down a search by date, category, type and location.
Google Drive integration
Automatic recognition of Drive folder structures and content from different sources
Overdrive automatically mimics or replicates a nominated folder structure within Drive so your website navigation will be exactly the same.
When you first set up your Overdrive site, you specify a folder or directory in Drive (eg ‘Company Information’ or ‘Project Latitude’) and Overdrive then builds the site using the same structure.
Overdrive also allows you to combine multiple Drive folders and content from different users and organisations.
Built-in security and permissions
Safe and secure access to content
Access to your Overdrive site is fully controlled and protected and where required, users sign in using a Google account.
In addition to the standard login security, there is also the option of two-factor authentication which means that users need a PIN number to gain access to a site.
Google Drive provides straightforward, granular control over file and folder sharing and this permissions structure is replicated in Overdrive. So if you want to restrict access to sensitive documents, simply update the Drive permissions.

Our client runs multiple property development projects and needed an easy way for internal and external team members, including project managers, executives, architects, engineers and finance staff to connect. They also wanted to manage and publish a wide range of content relevant to each project. Overdrive automatically generates a web portal for each project and users can access more than one project if required, so it was a simple and smart answer to a complex requirement
