Google Drive is great for collaborating with others but it's easy to miss when a new file is added to a shared folder. This Zapier integration between Google Drive and Slack solves this, automatically posting a notification in the channel of your choice when a file is added to a specific folder in Drive.

How It Works

  1. Zapier keeps an eye on a specific Google Drive folder
  2. When a new file is added, Zapier posts a message (customizable) in Slack

What You Need
