I want to be notified on line when a folder in Google Docs is updated, but it doesn't work.
What kind of zap should I build?
Do you have any suggestions?

Just wanted to follow up here to summarize the answer here! :)
- The New File in Folder Google Drive trigger would be able to trigger a Zap whenever a file is added to a specific folder. And the Updated File trigger would trigger a Zap whenever a file is updated in a specific folder.
- A Send Email Gmail action could be used to send an email to notification when a new file is added/updated in Google Drive.
- The thing to note with both of the Google Drive triggers is that they don’t trigger for activity within subfolders of the selected folder. So separate Zaps would need to be set up to watch files in other folders.
It’s also worth noting that there are some cases in how the file is added to the folder where the Zap won’t be able to trigger. More details on that can be found here: Not all my files are triggering my new file in folder Zap
