With the Upload building block you can upload any generated document into Google Drive. Documents can be generated in numerous ways. In this example a Google form is used to quickly collect a customer inquiry based on which automatically a draft version of an offer is generated and uploaded into Google Drive.

A link to the draft document is sent to the responsible sales person who can edit the offer. The email also contains the customers email address allowing the sales person to send the final document to the customer.

All so often it would be helpful to receive uploads/attachments from a Google form. In our example a small HR service allows to send applications. Besides the name and some motivational letter the applicant should also provide her/his CV as well as all school and work certificates. Using a form and separating the input in different fields lets you define mandatory input and base further logic on the provided information.

Using the Upload building block not only an individual file but also a multi-selection of files is possible using a Repeat building block.

After the form was submitted and all attached files got uploaded a PDF summary of the application including a link to CV and all certificates is created. The complete set of application information is provided to a HR employee who can evaluate the submission.
