Sometimes you and/or a colleague need to know when a new file is added to a Google Drive folder. Use Zapier to watch your Google Drive folder and generate an Email alert when a new file is added. All new files added after you set up this integration will trigger an Email alert. The email can be sent to multiple recipients, and optionally include the file as an attachment.

Note: This Zapier integration will not generate Email alerts for existing files in your Google Drive folder, only new files added after you've set it up.

How It Works

  1. A file is added to a Google Drive folder.
  2. Zapier generates an Email alert, optionally including the file as an attachment.
