Search for Google Drive files from Slack

Want a quick way to find the file you're talking about in Slack? Just setup this Zapier integration to build your own custom Slack Google Drive bot. Whenever you enter a message in the channel you select, Zapier will find the file matching that message, and post it to Slack. It's a simple way to find documents without leaving Slack.

Note: Once you've set this Zap up, you can add a filter step to watch for only specific types of messages in your Slack channel, and a formatter step to remove the bot name from your search. Here's more info on building a Slack bot with Zapier.

How this Slack-Google Drive integration works

  1. Enter a message in the Slack channel you select
  2. Zapier will search for that message content in Google Drive
  3. It'll then share that file back to your Slack channel
