Create Gmail email alerts for new Google Drive files in a folder

Sometimes you and/or a colleague need to know when a new file is added to a Google Drive folder. Use Zapier to watch your Google Drive folder and generate a Gmail alert when a new file is added. All new files added after you set up this integration will trigger a Gmail alert. The email can be sent to multiple recipients, and optionally include the file as an attachment.

Note: This Zapier integration will not generate Gmail alerts for existing files in your Google Drive folder, only new files added after you've set it up.

How It Works

  1. A file is added to a Google Drive folder.
  2. Zapier generates a Gmail alert, optionally including the file as an attachment.
