Automate linking existing Google Drive folders

Drive Connect Automation allows users to automatically link existing Google Drive folders to the Drive Links component by selecting the New Folder Link operation in a Record-Triggered flow.

Before using this operation, ensure to first create a Record-Triggered Flow using the Automate Drive action. For more information on setting up a Record-Triggered Flow, see the Using Drive Connect Automation with Record-Triggered Flows article.

In your flow, open a new action element node and follow the steps below:

  1. Click the Operation picklist and select New Folder Link
  2. Select the Folder to Link picklist to select a folder
    Select folder to link
  3. Select Parent Default Folder or select a specific folder from Google Drive
    Folder selected

Note: If linking the Parent Default Folder, you must select the same object as your main flow object. Otherwise, an error will occur upon saving your flow.

Note: If you receive a warning regarding insufficient access for the Automated Process User, ensure the folder location you select is accessible by the Automated Process User with full edit rights. For more information, please see the article on Granting access to folders in Drive.
