Hey @dev-zap-2022! I wanted to clarify, are you looking to build a zap using apps already supported in our app directory? Or were you looking to build your own custom integration using the dev platfom?

I just want to make sure your question gets in front of the best eyes to help. 😊

Hi @dev-zap-2022 👋

If you’d like to work with file attachments in your app, you’ll need to convert your app from the Visual Builder to the CLI platform instead: https://platform.zapier.com/docs/export 

For a tutorial on how to use hydration in CLI to download and upload files, see here: https://platform.zapier.com/cli_tutorials/hydration 

And for an example app, see here: https://github.com/zapier/zapier-platform/tree/master/example-apps/files
