Create your playbook

To automate this workflow, you'll create a Relay playbook that runs automatically every time a new Typeform response is submitted.

Get started by signing up at and clicking "New playbook." Give your new playbook a unique name and emoji.


Add the Typeform "New response" trigger

Every playbook starts with a trigger. The trigger detects changes in your connected apps and runs your playbook in response.

Click "Add trigger" and select "New response" under Typeform. Then, select the form. This trigger will automatically detect all the new responses in Typeform to upload a file in Google Drive.

If this is your first time using a Typeform integration in Relay, you'll be prompted to connect your Typeform account.


Add the Google Drive "Upload files" automation

Integrate the Google Drive automation into your playbook to ensure the prompt upload of files to Google Drive for every new response received in Typeform. Add a new step and select "Upload files" from the list of Google Drive automations.

Connect Google Drive to Relay if you haven't already, then fill out the mandatory and relevant details. You can reference fields from Typeform to automatically pass along the right data.


Turn on the playbook

Activating your playbook is the final step to automate uploading a new file in Google Drive for every new response received in Typeform. Once turned on, it will respond to the new responses received in Typeform by uploading the specific file to Google Drive without manual intervention.

To enable your playbook, click the toggle button located in the header. It is advisable to perform a test run of your playbook beforehand to ensure all steps work seamlessly together and reminders are sent correctly.
