How does this automation work?

Bardeen connects your email to Google Drive, allowing you to automate the process of saving email attachments into a specified Google Drive folder. This automation is particularly useful for businesses that receive a high volume of attachments via email, such as invoices or reports, and need to ensure these are stored safely and can be easily accessed. By automating this process, you can save time and ensure that no important attachments are missed or lost.

Here is how this workflow works:

  1. Trigger when email is received: This command triggers the workflow when an email is received. The attachments in the email will be used in the next step.
  2. Upload to Google Drive: The attachments from the received email are then uploaded to a specific Google Drive folder. With Google Drive, you can keep all your files organized and up to date. You will need to specify the folder in Google Drive where the attachments should be saved.
