How does this automation work?

Bardeen connects Google Mail to Google Drive to efficiently manage your email attachments. With this automation, any attachments from your emails can be automatically saved to a designated Google Drive folder. This not only saves you time but also ensures that your important files are stored safely and can be accessed easily when needed.

Here is how this workflow works:

  1. Find emails: This step involves an integration with Google Mail, which is one of the most popular email services. Bardeen will find emails that exactly match the given argument.
  2. Upload file to Google Drive: Any attachments found in the previous step are then uploaded to a specified Google Drive folder. Google Drive is a platform that keeps all your files organized and up to date. With Bardeen, you can connect Google Drive to all your other apps, making it even more powerful by automatically managing your files.
