I got an error message while embedding my file
This can happen for a few reasons.
1. The link you are trying to embed is not an embedded link. Always make sure to copy embedded links and not regular URLs (see examples above).
2. On some websites such as Youtube, the content creator will have the option to enable or disable the embed option. If you are getting an error while trying to embed the link, it might be because the content creator removed that setting from his/her video. You can always reach out to him/her to change that setting.
3. Certain sites don't allow embedding and will not let you embed their content externally at all.
To sum up, this feature is a must to enhance your workflow. It allows you to centralize all your important documents, videos and more in one single place for better and easier collaboration. 🙌
