How do I get shareable link to a folder from a shared Google Drive?

Is it possible to get shareable link to a folder from shared Google Drive. It easy to get a link to folder when I try to use my “own” normal Google Drive, but it doesn't work for shared (company) Google Drive.

Is any solution available for that? 


Thank you

Hi @much1978 

Good question.

You may need to be the owner of the Shared Drive in order for the following Zap action to work.

Try using this Zap action: GDrive - Add File Sharing Preference


Hey @Troy Tessalone ,


Thank you for your reply. GDrive - Add File Sharing Preference - that is exactly what I tried for, and unfortunately it doesn't work for shared drives.

Maybe in case of shared drive, it would be possible to get the link using API. 


Thanks again

Hey @much1978 sorry for the trouble here! You’re correct in that we don’t have support for files in shared folders at this time. We have an open feature request for this, which I’ve just added you to. Additionally, we have a main thread for this request here: 

If we have any updates on this, that’s where we’ll be sharing them. Sorry for the bummer news here but I’m hoping this is something we’ll be able to support in the short term!

Hi @jesse ,


thank you for your reply!


Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like Zapier team care too much about that problem, since the tread you linked was created 2 years ago :)
