Saving a document in Google Drive (Zapier)

PDFMonkey on Zapier

PDFMonkey is currently in the Early Access catogory. It provides a Document Generated trigger and a Generate Document action. This recipe will leverage the trigger.

Create a Zap

To get started access the PDFMonkey integration page and accept the invitation to use the integration.

The Document Generated trigger

You can now create a Zap, select PDFMonkey as the event source and Document Genrated as the trigger event.

Zapier will then ask you to authenticate your PDFMonkey account. You can do so by filling in your private key (you can find it the Account page in the Dashboard).

Once authenticated you’ll be able to select the App and, optionally, the Template or Templates for which you want your Zap to run. In case you don’t select Templates the Zap will run for any Document generated for the selected App.

Saving the Document in Google Drive

Once your trigger is set up you can select the Google Drive integration and choose the Upload File action event.

Connect or select your Google Drive account to access your folders.

You’ll then be asked for details about the file upload:

  • Select the drive and folder in which you want to save the created Document
  • For the File field select the Download URL (valid for 30s) property for the generated Document
  • Choose if the new file should converted to an editable document (usually no)

You can either customize the uploaded file name in Zapier or customize the file name when calling the API.

Once finished you can save your Zap and turn in on.
