Trigger - new row in a spreadsheet. Row contains a filepath in the same Googe Drive, e.g. “My Drive\Folder\file.zip”

Action - move a file using the filepath from trigger.

 

The question is - what is the right filepath format? Used “My Drive\Folder\file.zip” and “Folder\file.zip” but action returns an error

 

Failed to create a move file in Google Drive

'NoneType' object has no attribute 'get'

Hi @val.val.vasilevsky 

Good question.

You’ll need to use File IDs and Folder IDs rather than GDrive location paths.

Thank you, Troy!

So, it seems impossible to use a spreadsheet as a source of information for a Move file action, right?

The spreadsheet would need to have the GDrive File/Folder IDs, not the paths.

Hi friends, I wanted to swing by and summarize some of the recommendations here. Troy mentioned 

The spreadsheet would need to have the GDrive File/Folder IDs, not the paths.

This similar question here explains how and where to find the ID. 

I hope this helps! 🤗
