I am creating a zap to get informations from an email and generate a new presentation using a google slides template. but Zapier do not find my template, I try with others Zap to find the ID (Google Drive and Google Slides), I try with static ID, but nothing works.

It’s weird, because he find fields from template but when I test it fail with not found.

Thanks in advance for your help

PS: with Google Docs, the same logic works perfectly, I think Google Slides can’t access Shared Drive, how to correct that or ask developers to add this in roadmap ?

Hi @guillaume.harel 

Good question.

Please post detailed screenshots with how your Zap step is configured in order for us to have context.

Help article:

Some screenshots, does that help ?

After some test, I find my template when I put it into my drive, if the file is on the shared drive, Zapier could not find it. So the technique is to copy into my drive, create template and move it after. not very friendly… thanks for your help
