Google Drive Integration Details

Launched on Zapier April 24, 2012

Google Drive will keep all your files organized and up to date, and with Zapier, you can connect Google Drive to all your other apps. Send notifications, create and update documents, and share files without even opening Google Drive. Use Zapier to make Google Drive even more powerful by automatically managing your files—making sure they’re right where you need them, when you need them.

Here are some creative ways to use Google Drive with Zapier:

  • Save all your Gmail attachments without having to download them yourself. Zapier will add files to Google Drive in the folder of your choice.
  • Stay up to date on file sharing while working in Slack. Whenever a specific Drive folder receives a file, you’ll get an Slack notification.
  • Organize meeting notes for new clients. When you create a new Trello card, Zapier will search for specific files in Google Drive and attach them to that card.

Zapier combines Triggers (like "New File") and Actions (like "Upload File") to complete an action in one app when a trigger occurs in another app. These combos—called "Zaps"—complete your tasks automatically.

The following Google Drive Triggers, Searches, and Actions are supported by Zapier:

Create File from Text
