I have been working on my zap for a long time.
I have created 4 folders and one of them is to be shared with the client. But the shareable link always comes out not working. It says the below
Step is create folder
Next step is pulling the id from the created folder above
then run test
But shareable link is not viewable to the client, just gets that preview screen
Gah no idea what I am missing
Since the trigger is “Add File Sharing Preference” I assume that only works on Files and not with Folders. You can raise this question to the support by filling out the form here: https://zapier.com/app/get-help?from_url=https%3A%2F%2Fzapier.com%2Fhelp
My understanding is that the file sharing permissions works on folders as well provided you use the folder ID where the FILE ID goes. But I could be wrong and this could be my problem.
Yes, the GDrive Add File Sharing Permissions works on Folders as well.
Thanks Troy, any idea why my zap above is not working then?
The link the zap generates is different to a link i generate if i got into the folder on G drive and create a link to share, could it be its missing the correct foler?
Nothing is wrong with the generated Share link for the GDrive folder.
Here’s how to understand what’s going on…
The end user can rename the GDrive folder with the Share link.
If you want the end user to be able to upload files to the Folder that had the sharing permissions updated, then provide them with the “Alternate” link generated from Step 14.
NOTE: The end user will need to be signed in to a Google Account in order to interact with the GDrive folder.
