Make sure your team knows about new shared files by sending them to your team communication tool. Use this Zap to automatically add new Google Drive files in certain folders to Twist as threads. Once Zapier has auto-created a thread in Twist, your team can collaborate on the file, make edits, and start a discussion immediately.

How this Google Drive-Twist integration works

  1. A new file is created in a Google Drive folder
  2. Zapier adds a thread to a certain channel in Twist
