Folder File Monitor

With the Folder File Monitor function you can monitor folders for new files that are added to a Google Drive folder. All the files detected will be automatically added to a Google Sheet.

(This feature is available to all paid users)

The monitor runs every 30 minutes and currently you can monitor only 1 folder at a time. We are working on this to allow an unlimited number of folders plus multiple scan options.

To open the Folder File Monitor open the FileDrop addon and click on the Tools menu> Folder Tools

Here select the Folder File Monitor tab.

Enter the folder id you want to monitor and click Start Monitoring. You will receive a confirmation message.

If any files are in the folder these will be listed in your current Sheet.

The Sheet will be updated when new files are detected.
