Google Drive connector

About Kissflow's Google Drive integration

The Google Drive connector of Kissflow Integration enables you to connect and synchronize your Google Drive folders and files with popular third-party apps and Kissflow apps. You must have a valid Google account and be a paid Kissflow customer in order to integrate with Google Drive.

To perform specific actions, use the Google Drive connector to receive data from other flows or apps. For now, the connector for Google Drive does not support any trigger events.

For example, after completing a Kissflow Process workflow, you can set up an integration with the Google Drive connector to save attachments in specific folders. You can also create actions to perform certain actions, such as sending users an automatic email.
