Cannot connect to files in Google "Shared Drives"


Userlevel 1

Dear Zap Team,

I’m trying to append text in a Google Doc with information from Monday.com Pulses. The Zap works just fine for Docs in “My Drive” but not for Docs in my company “Shared drives”. 

I followed instruction from another post (https://community.zapier.com/ask-the-community-3/new-google-drive-zap-can-t-find-shared-drives-1067) and plugged in the folder ID into the Customize Text. Again, this works for “My Drive” but not “Shared drives”.

Are there specific setting I need to adjust on the Shared drive to allow Zapier to access the files?

Thank you,

Adrian

Hey folks, 

Just popping by with a quick update to announce that the feature request has been implemented! 😁🎉

The new Shared with Me option can be selected from Folder fields - as long as the Drive field is either left empty unselected or has My Google Drive selected:

With Shared with Me selected you can then access folders and subfolders that are in your Shared with Me area on Google Drive. 

We hope you’re able to make use of this new feature soon. If you experience any issues with it please do reach out in the Community to let us know. In the meantime, happy Zapping! ⚡

Hi @aferg,

 

I’ve added your vote for this feature request, and we’ll  notify you via email once an update is readily available. Thanks.

@JammerS can you add me to this list too? REALLY odd and frustrating can’t find/share/move items on Shared drives via Zap 😶

This was ever fixed? Seems to be a issue going back ages.

Shared drives are all my org uses so we don’t lose documents in personal folders.  Is there any way to use the new Beta API as a workaround?

Please add my vote to this thread, and numerous other threads going back 2 years. The Google Drive app and the Google Sheets app both support Shared Drives. The Google Doc app does not and it is a killer. Please fix this soon, it has been a long time since Shared Drives were added as a feature, they should be supported.

Hi @jason.lay.AM, @First Rank 

 

I’ve added all your votes for this feature request and we’ll update via email once available. No ETA as of the moment. Thanks!

Any updates on this? The fact that we can’t append text to a document on a shared Google drive means we can’t automate our processes in the way we would like and may force us into using a different product. It’s a feature we need ASAP.

Is this feature still not available? I find this strange because there seems to be no problem with connected a google spreadsheet from a shared drive - this is specific to appending google docs?

 

if so, then i’d like to upvote this too.

Hi and welcome to the Community, @Warren! :)

I’ve added your vote for this feature request. No ETA on when support for shared drives will added but we will be sure to email you as soon as it is!

I noticed today that Shared drives are supported for Sheets integration (add a row to a spreadsheet) but not yet for Created Doc from Template - Folder for new Document.) That makes it seem like shared drive support is possible. Please consider this an upvote for Shared drive support for Google Doc creation from template.

Thanks!

Adding my vote to resolve the shared drive issueas well. This could be a dealbreaker for some of our users and clients. @Danvers

Please add my vote. Shared drives seem to be here to stay and it feels like Zapier should get on this.

Hi @tweaker!

I’ve added you to the feature request so you can receive an email notification when it’s been implemented. I’m afraid I don’t have an ETA at this time.
