Annoying polling triggers

Why are the polling triggers such as Google Drive watch file create/ modify only available to use as the first module in a scenario?

These non-instant triggers must be run manually or on a schedule. I’d like my scenarios to be triggered by webhook and want the second module to be the Google drive watch.

The file search modules are not a good replacement for ‘watch’ since they won’t traverse a folder tree.

Hi. You can’t use a Watch as a second step in scenario. You can use the Google Drive Notification APIs to be notified by an webhook and use the Search module to get all data after the trigger.

Here the Google API docs for notifications:

Thanks, Helio!
