Create and organize automatic file backups with Gmail and Google Drive. This integration watches for Gmail messages with attachments, then saves tom to a Google Drive folder. We'll even look up the folder for you based on the sender's name, and create folders on the fly for any new contacts.

How it Works

When you receive a new email in Gmail with an attachment, Zapier looks for a folder that matches the sender's name; if we can't find one, we'll create a folder. From there, the Zap copies the attachment to your Google Drive folder so you can keep everything organized.

What You Need

  • A Gmail account with new emails with attachments
  • A Google Drive account
