I'm trying to sync new files from google drive to another file sharing service. But I would like to create the same directory on the destination side.

Looking at the available file details zapier has for google drive, I did not see the path name or folder name. Has anyone else had the same problem and solved this?

Hi @Ewart, thanks for writing into our community! Happy to help.

I'm unsure of your destination app, but I can recommend that you try "Create Folder" as a intermediary step to your Zap. Once you have the "Create Folder" step set, then you can map that field into where you want new files to sync into.

Step 1: New file in folder

Step 2: Create new folder

Step 3: Find folder

Step 4: Upload file

Give this a try and let me know if it worked out for you. Thanks so much!
