How To - Connect to Google Drive

Summary: Connecting to Google Drive gives you the ability to automate workflows using files located in your Google Drive. Once you are connected to Google Drive you can use our Zibots to create automation flows.

Where is the feature applied? To connect to Google Drive you need to click on the “Connections” tab and then click on “Connect Cloud Storage” before selecting “Google Drive” from the list.

How does it work?

When you click on Google Drive, Ziflow will then walk you through the connection process to add a Google Drive account.

Step 1: If you already have a Google account simply select the Google Drive account you wish to use from the drop-down or choose another account and sign in.


Step 2: You will be asked if you allow Ziflow to view and manage files on your Google Drive. Click Allow to proceed.

You're done … you should now see your Google Drive account listed inside your “Connections” area.

If you desire you are also able to rename the Google Drive account something else inside Ziflow. Eg. Production files.

Additional information:

  • Now you have added cloud storage to your Ziflow account you can start using the workflow automation tools. Use the Zibots to build Flows to automate tasks.
