Hi there,


in @PaulKortman’s reply in this thread: 

 he said that it’s possible to ‘… rename a file by “moving” it in Google Drive’. How can you do this? I could just find the fields to select a target folder in Google Drive.

The file in question is a Google Sheet which must not be copied, only moved. Just want to add a timestamp to the filename, but I don’t know how to achieve this.

Hi @looping 

I’m not seeing the ability to rename a file when moving it using the GDrive Move File option.

Hi @Troy Tessalone, thank you for your reply. Yes, that’s what I said in the question above. I was hoping for some Zapier Formatter + Move File in Google Drive combo as a workaround as Paul implied.
