Acuity info Zap to newly created file and folder within Egnyte


When a new appointment gets scheduled by a client in my Acuity (calendar app) account, I want to have that apointment info saved automatically in a new .RTFD file within an automatically created new folder within my Egnyte account.  The newly created folder and RTFD file should both be named with the client’s name.  I tried to set this up but i don’t think Zaps can create new files.  Is this true?

 

Thanks!

Hi there @gilbent - Thanks for the question! I’m afraid that Egnyte does not have the option to Create New Files as an Action yet. 

I have put in a feature request for this on your behalf. That does a few things:

- Bring this to the attention of the integration developers
- Help track interest in this feature being implemented
- Allows us to notify you via email if this feature becomes available in the future

While I don't have an ETA on when this feature might be implemented, we will notify you via email if it is!

Thanks @stph!  Are there any work arounds in the interim that you would suggest that would accomplish the same outcome but maybe with another app in between Acuity and Egnyte?  Thanks again!

Hi @gilbent!

We asked around and one of our other moderators (@ikbelkirasan) had this to say:


Hmm, I haven't used it before but it seems to integrate with Google Drive. However, this integration is only available to users who have activated it previously. So, maybe the only way to create folders/files in Egnyte is to build a custom integration.

Google Drive - Egnyte legacy integration: https://helpdesk.egnyte.com/hc/en-us/articles/201638914-Using-Egnyte-s-Google-Drive-Integration-Legacy-Edition-

Hopefully that helps!
