Hi everyone,

Once a pdf is uploaded into google drive, I’m trying to send a gmail with that very attachment, not a link. Please be so kind and assist.

 

Thank you,

Hi @KarlaRome 

You could try setting up a zap like the following

 

Trigger: New File in Google Drive

Action: Send email with Gmail

 

There is an input field for attachments on the Gmail action and you will have a field from the trigger labeled ‘File’.

Thanks for the info! It worked, but when uploading more than 1 file, the end user receives one email per each attachment. Would you know how to send only 1 email with all the newly uploaded attachments? I tried looking for a middle step to zip all the new files in an archive and send the archive, but maybe there is a better way.

Thank you in advance!

That would be a bit more difficult to do without any code. I believe the send email in Gmail step may have a limit but how many attachments are you trying to include? How often does an email need get sent and is there anything that relates one file in Google drive to another?
