Google Drive + Slack

Set Slack channel topics from new files in a Google Drive folder

A Slack channel's topic is a great location for information you want to ensure is seen by the whole team, like links to your latest files, but updating it all the time can be a chore. Set up this Google Drive-Slack integration, however, and Zapier can take care of that for you, automatically updating your chosen Slack channel's topic with the details from every new file you add to a specific Google Drive folder from then on.
