Google Drive New Files Does Not Work

Hello,

I do the following:
1.) I upload files to a google drive folder during the week Monday-to-Friday
2.) End of week e.g. Saturday: I rename the files to a naming convention what fits to a pabbly workflow

Pabbly workflow:
1.) New file in a Specific folder
2.) do xy

Questions:
1.) It looks like Pabbly does not recognize renamed files as new files. Is that correct? What attribute is used to determine if it is a new file?
2) Even if I download the files, delete them in the drive and upload them again, Pabbly does nothing with it. Why?

Important: If I test my workflow in Pabbly Connect, it works.
Important 2: If I connect my GoogleDrive Account, Pabbly does not find my subfolder. I need to do it by folderID

Hey @eSpox

1.) It looks like Pabbly does not recognize renamed files as new files. Is that correct? What attribute is used to determine if it is a new file?
Please note that if a file already exists and if you rename it that will not be considered a new file.

So, if you want to run the workflow when a file's name is updated then kindly use the "Google Drive: Updated File" trigger event.

Kindly record a short video on the same along with the workflow URL, so that we can look into it.

Hello, I think this same problem. I am having trouble when uploading my files from WhatsApp to Google Drive, and I can't get responses from Webhook Response when I am send files from WhatsApp
