BufferAdd to Buffer

You can easily notify your social media followers of new files in a Google drive folder by using Buffer. Zapier can automatically capture Google Drive files in a folder and add a content item to a Buffer queue. Once you set up this Google Drive to Buffer integration, new files added to a folder from that point forward are individually added as new items in a Buffer queue.

How It Works

  1. A new file is added to a folder in Google Drive
  2. Zapier adds a file notification to a Buffer queue

What You Need

  • A Google Drive account
  • A Buffer account
