I am facing an issue with my existing Zap. 


Problem background: I have created a google form that asks the users to upload pictures. I want to create unique folders on my google drive for every form response that I receive and that pictures will be stored in that folder with the name of the user. 

Getting the error in Google drive: File empty (required)

@vardhman89 Can you share with us a screenshot of the “Customise Upload File” section of your step 3? 

Thank you for your reply, here you go:

Hi @vardhman89, thanks for the extra detail!


In the Upload file step, for the Folder field, you need to use the ID of the folder that was created in the previous step and not the name of the folder. You should see the folder ID as one of the fields that is in the output of the Create Folder step. In other words,  you’ll need to get the ID of the folder from the second step and the put that in the Folder field of the Upload file step instead of the folder name. 

Thank you for the reply @Danvers , can you tell me what will come under the file section. I am still getting the error “The app returned "File not found:”

Hi @vardhman89!

Based on the screenshot above, it looks like you’ll want to remove the text that you’ve typed into the Folder field. You’ve mapped the ID from the first step, but also typed something in. You only need the mapped one. Can you delete that text to see if it helps?
