Previous attempts of attaching a document has resulted in .txt files attached or “virus detected” on my document. Therefore, here is my workaround:


In order to send an email with an attachment in zapier, follow these steps:


  1. Send email in Gmail action has to be created.
  2. Upload the desired file to a Google drive folder, and change permission to anyone can view the file
  3. Copy the FILE link (not the folder link)
  4. Enter to this page and put your link there
  5. Copy the result link to the attachment section in Send email in gmail action (zapier)
