I’m looking for a way to display/attach an image from an email to GMail into a Slack Channel.


I have everything setup so far, but it is not displaying the image.   It just shows it as a file to download.   I used to have this working, but for some reason it is not anymore.  

It is showing the file but not the image:

Hi @joshloe 

Good question.

Please post detailed screenshots with how your Zap steps are configured to help us have more context.

The mapped variable is for all attachments, which may be a zip file.

 

You may want to try using this Zap trigger: Gmail - New Attachment

Thanks, I’ve changed this over to just the attached image file (there is only one file) and it does the same thing.  I’ve played around with this quite a bit.

 

 

Same result:

I tested and was able to get this PNG image to show in Slack.

 

 

 

 

This also worked:

That’s weird, I just added it as attach image by URL as well, I got the same results as previously

Try this…

Pull thru a fresh example in the Zap trigger.

The Attachment links are temp files that expire after some time.

That worked!  The link expired I guess, thank you!
