Currently stuck on a task submission form with Typeform, Monday, GDocs, and slack.  I’d like zappier to generate a doc from a template, update its fields and add it to monday task. But I keep getting this error. 

I confirmed with IT that I have the correct permissions in google docs. so now I’m stuck. Any advice?

Hi @Planful Marketing 

Good question.

Make sure the GDoc account connected to Zapier has access the the GDoc that is trying to be used.

Perhaps make a copy of the GDoc template so you are the owner of the GDoc.
