How to Embed Google Drive Files in Email Notification

The Forms Notification add-on allows you to attach multiple files from your Google Drive with the outgoing notification email. You can follow these simple steps to embed Google Drive links in the email message body to attach the files:

Step 1- Open your Google Drive and go to the location where the file you want to attach is stored.

Step 2- Make sure that the file is accessible by anyone with the link. To do so, right-click on the file name, and go to Share > Share. Under General Access, change the settings from Restricted to ‘Anyone with a link’.
