Is it possible to only save one Gmail attachment to Google Drive?

I was wondering if anyone has solved a similar problem.  I’m trying to take a PDF (e.g. workorder.pdf) received to my Gmail account and save the attachment to a Google Drive folder.  Using Zapier, DocParser will then pull the workorder.pdf in and parse it, and update a Google Spreadsheet.  

 

The challenge I have is that it’s common when I receive a workorder, other files are attached to the email.  I only want to save/keep/upload the file with “workorder” in the filename.  Is it possible to do this using Zapier?  

 

The only workaround I can think of is to save all attachments to a staging folder.  Use Zapier to watch that folder with “workorder” in the filename.  If/when one arrives, copy that file to a processing folder.  I don’t mind doing it this way, I was just hoping for something a little cleaner.  

 

Thanks!

Add a Filter step to the Zap to filter attachments by filename: https://zapier.com/apps/filter/help
