To use Google Drive in your workflow, you will first need to connect it with Flow.

To do this, drag any Google Drive action listed under Google Drive service on the canvas. In case of configuring Google Drive triggers, double-click the Start on your canvas and select Google Drive service. Then, click on the Add New option listed under the Authorize Google Drive field in the configuration window.  You’ll be prompted to the Flow permission window.  Click ALLOW.


Next, you’ll get a window asking with which Google account you want to continue to Flow. 


By selecting the google account of your choice, a window appears asking Flow to access your selected Google account.


On clicking the ALLOW button, you will be redirected to the Add Authorization window.


Rename the authorization as per your choice and click ADD. You can now see the added authorization under the Authorize Google Drive field. Once added, this authorization will be available in all Google Drive actions and triggers.
