Use Zapier automation to stay updated and get an email alert or alert others when a new document is created in Google Docs. This Google Docs-Gmail integration will ensure that any new Google Documents will trigger an email to your chosen recipients with content you define.

Note: This Zapier integration doesn't send emails for existing documents, only new ones after you've set it up.

How It Works

  1. A new document is created in Google Docs
  2. Zapier automation sends an email via Gmail to the specified recipient(s)
