How does this automation work?

Bardeen connects Google Drive with Slack, creating an efficient workflow to send files directly from Google Drive to a Slack user. With this playbook, you streamline the process and save time from manually downloading and uploading files. You can easily share necessary documents with your team, keeping everyone updated and facilitating better collaboration.

Here is how this workflow works:

  1. Find Google Drive File: The first step involves Google Drive, where a file or folder is searched based on a name that you provide. Google Drive is a file storage platform that keeps all your files organized and up to date.
  2. Send File to Slack: Next, Bardeen sends the file found in the previous step to a Slack recipient. You need to specify the recipient in Slack, a platform that simplifies team communication by connecting with other apps you use.

How to run the workflow

Need to quickly share a file with your colleague in Slack but don’t have time to look for it on Google Drive, download the file to your computer and then re-upload it to Slack? 

With this automation, you can easily share any G Drive files without opening tabs and copy pasting and send the link to a Slack user, in one click. Just pick a file and choose a Slack recipient or channel. That’s it.

Let’s set up this automation!

Step 1: Pin the playbook and integrate Google Drive and Slack

It will prompt you to enter two arguments:

  • Drivefile - The file you want to share. Just enter the file name in the search bar and click on the one you want to share. 
  • Recipient - The Slack user or channel you want to share your file with. Just enter the file name in the search bar to find the user.
