I am new to Zapier and my apologies if this is a very basic question.

I am creating a zap with three steps:

  1. Trigger and capture assessment data 
  2. Create a new Google Doc from a template and write into a Gdrive folder. The Share Preference is set to Anyone With The Link Can Edit.
  3. Send an email with the doc created in the above step as attachment, using GMail.

Steps 1, 2 work perfectly. Doc created in GDrive folder.

What do I put into the Attachments field so that the doc is attached to the email ?

I tried searching for a similar request herein and did not find any.


Any pointers, tips would be helpful.

The field that you can map from Google Docs to Gmail is this one:

If you haven’t tried that yet, would you mind giving it a try to see if you can get that working?
