You need a task on your list for new files, to make sure you take care of them right away. Once this Zap is set up, if a new file is added to a Google Drive folder, Zapier will add a task to your Todoist task list. You can focus on your tasks and get more done.

How this Google Drive-Todoist integration works

  1. A new file is added to a certain Google Drive folder
  2. Zapier adds a Todoist task
