Zap isn't uploading the PandaDoc template to Google Drive, getting blank Google Doc instead.

My Zap creates a Doc in Panda Doc from a template (all working fine)… My Doc is showing up in panda as a draft, and then im running a pandaDoc find Doc step and its successfully finding my newly made doc… 

The next thing I’m trying to do is a Upload File in Google Drive step… all that I’m getting in my team drive is a blank google doc that just has the File name on it…


Is there any way to get the actual template from pandadoc transferred? Here is my flow and the details on the Upload file in G Drive step:


Any help here would be great!!!

Hi @Woozie83 

Good question.

The File field expects a file object or a file url, instead of a File Name.

Im not seeing File Object or File URL as options… would this have anything to do with it just being in draft status in PandaDoc when I’m trying to pull it?

I tried to look at my previous find step to see if Object or URL were in there but didnt see it there either

PandaDoc should return a PDF.

Try searching for (Exists but not shown)
