Post Slack alert messages for new Google Drive files

  1. When this happensStep 1: New File

  2. Then do thisStep 2: Send Channel Message

Sometimes your team need to know when a new file is added to a Google Drive account. If your team uses Slack, use this Google Drive Slack integration to watch your Google Drive account and generate a Slack message to a specific channel when a new file is added. All new files added after you set up this integration will trigger a Slack message.

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

How It Works

  1. A file is added to a Google Drive account.
  2. Zapier generates a new message to a channel in Slack.
