Within Teamwork, you can create a new Google document directly from the files area of a project.

To do this you must first enable the Google integration on your site then enable it on the individual project, ensuring you select your root/top level folder. 

Note: Only site owner or site admins will have the permissions to enable the site integration.

Once both of these have been enabled, navigate to the Files area of the project.

If you have multiple integrations enabled, click File Integrations to access Google Drive.

In the Google Drive modal, you will see a list of files in the top level folder you have connected.

The option to create a new file to add to this folder can be found along the bottom of the pop up window.
