Hey Ash,

Google Drive needs to make your doc a PDF before it offers any sharing options to third-party apps like Blue Jeans. Here's how it works:
  1. While in your Blue Jeans meeting, switch to Drive and navigate to your document
  2. Click the ellipsis (...) and select Share & export from the pop-up menu
  3. Click Send a copy
  4. Choose the PDF format and touch OK. Wait while Google prepares the PDF...
  5. You will now see the familiar sharing IOS sharing menu, where you can share to Message, Mail, Notes, etc. Scroll right to find the Blue Jeans icon, and touch it.
  6. Your iPhone/iPad will switch to the Blue Jeans app and display a preview of your document. Touch Share to share it into your meeting.
Hope this helps!

Also, when the file options are opened:
Navigate to Send a copy
Select Open In
Select Copy to BlueJeans

The file will be located within the document panel of the app.
