HiveTrigger Action Template

There are many occasions when you need to act on the arrival of a new file - a new invoice, a new case, a new proposal or a new specification. Kick off a set of actions when a new file is saved to Google Drive, and ensure that the team follow the same set of actions each time a new file is added.

How It Works

  1. A new file is added to Google Drive
  2. Zapier kicks off a workflow in Hive
