Send files to Google Drive via email

Google Drive is a great tool for team collaboration on shared files and folders. This Google Drive Email integration lets you forward an email with an attachment to your Zapier Email address and automatically add your attachment to your Google Drive account. Once this integration has been setup all Email file attachments received from that point forward will be copied to Google Drive.

Note: This Zapier integration will not store existing Email file attachments to your Google Drive account, only new Email files received after you've set it up.

How It Works

  1. An email with a file attachment is forwarded to a Zapier Email account.
  2. Zapier stores this file in Google Drive.
