Separate Names for Multiple Email Attachments uploaded to Google Drive

  • 6 December 2021

I have successfully set up a zap to upload email attachments from Gmail to google drive. Each attachment saves as a separate file. However, they all have the same file name. The original file attachments have separate/specific names however, they get uploaded to google drive with the same file name combining their individual names.


Can i either combine them into one Zip file upload or have them named according to their original file names?

Hi @vferrara 

Check that you are using the correct mapped variable for this:

NOTE: There should be one w/o the ‘s’ at the end of Attachment (singular).


I have multiple files on my email but the Zap is giving me a Zip file combining all the files.

If you're using one of the new email-type Gmail triggers and find that all of the attachments on those e-mails are being zipped use the Gmail "New Attachment" trigger instead. This trigger runs once for every attachment on an email.
