Download document from URL in Gmail

Is it possible to download a ‘unique’ document from a URL in Gmail via a Zap?

To explain…. I’ve set up a Zap to automatically forward invoices/receipts from Gmail to Xero and its been working great, but… I am increasingly finding that the email contains a URL to the invoice/receipt and not an attachment as such what goes into Xero is blank. 

So, my thoughts are to download the doc from the URL into google docs and from there to Xero but I am struggling to find how to download a document from the URL via Zapier.  Grateful for any help.  


PS for clarity I use a Gsuite account

Hey @stratshell,

I think this particular challenge was already discussed here. Can you have a look if this can help you?

Best Wishes

Hi @Ennes 

Thanks so much for your response.  

I’ve looked at the instructions at the link you sent but that looks to be transferring a new document from Google Drive but doesn’t say how to download the document into the Google Drive from a link in Gmail.  

Relatively new to Zapping so maybe I’m misunderstanding something …. 

Grateful for any help.  Thanks again.
