Hi all,


We need to automate an action where an automated email is sent including a PDF file attached. We’ve tried to do it uploading a PDF through a Google Drive Link but it isn’t working. Does anyone know how to do it?


Thanks in advance,

Hi @E&V - Marketing 

Please provide screenshots of how your Zap steps are configured.

Thanks for your reply @Troy Tessalone. We are trying to add the PDF as it follows (through a Google Drive link with open permissions).

Our aim is to generate an automated reply inclusion always the same PDF attachment.


This is the complete set up.

The link to the Attachment needs to be a publicly accessible link.

You can test this by trying to open the link in a new private browser.

Thanks! @Troy Tessalone the link is public: do you have any solution for this ?

That's a VIEW link, try using a different link.

It needs to be a link that would essentially download the file.

You can see the other available links by using a different Zap to do a GDrive Find File search step.

Thanks! Indeed changing the link to a downloadable file worked! :grinning:
