Hi

I made a zap between Email parser by zapier and google drive to save the pdf files sent as attachments to the email address.
When there's a single attachment, it works without a hitch, but if there are several attachments, it creates a zip.
I found a thread that solves this problem for gmail but not for email parser by zapier. Do you have any solution to save all attachement separately on google Drive ?

Thanks
Benjamin

Hi @PowerBen 

Good question.

Try using the Looping app to handle 1+ items: https://zapier.com/apps/looping/help

Hi @Troy Tessalone 

 

Thanks for your quick answer.

I tried "create loop from line items".

 

But the test returns :

Required field "Values to Loop" (loop_values) is missing.

 

Either I've missed something or I haven't understood how this loop system works.

May be you can help me, again.

I think the Email Parser returns 1 attachment whether there is 1+ files.

If there are multiple attachments, then those are put into a ZIP file.

So I don’t think you’ll be able to use the Looping app.

 

A workaround is to use this Zap action: Gmail - New Attachment
