File naming protocol on upload to drive

Re. Autosave new attachments from Gmail to Google Drive.


I’m applying this zap to emails which all have the same format (they’re auto-generated by another piece of software). Within the body of the email is the name I would like to give the file/attachment. For example:


Body text of the email message reads: “Your document <N001> has been approved.”

Then I would like the file name for the attachment to be “N001”


Is it possible to set a naming protocol where the zap can identify the “N001” from the body of the email and make this the filename for the attachment when it uploads it?

Hi @nmharrower 

Try these Zap steps

  1. Trigger: Gmail New Attachment
  2. Action: Formatter > Text > Split (split at “Your document ”)
  3. Action: Formatter > Text > Split (split at “ has been approved.”)
  4. Action: GDrive Upload File

Were you still needing help here, or were you able to get things working with the info from Troy?
