Possible to Use Slack Emoji to Trigger Zap to G Drive Folder

Zapier newbie here with a first time post!  The team I work on shares A LOT of great documentation they create in Slack, but unfortunately that documentation is oftentimes buried in Slack never to resurface again.  The most common type of document created is Google Doc, Google Sheet or Google Presentation.  I’m wondering if a Zap exists for this:

  1. A user posts a document in a Slack Channel
  2. A user reacts with a specific (most likely custom) emoji
  3. The emoji being added as a reaction triggers that file to be sent to a specific folder in G drive

Does anyone know if this is possible?
