I’m trying to watch a album in my google photos and when a new photo is added, it will post that photo to a discord channel.
I was able to get it to work one time, it posted one photo and then it stopped working.
BTW, I wish the tags had better descriptions. Google Photos module has multiple “path” tags, but no real description as to the different between them. The Discord has example URLS, but they go off the side of the window and can’t be read.

1. Scenario blueprint
Please export the scenario blueprint file to allow others to view the mappings and settings. At the bottom of the scenario editor, you can click on the three dots to find the Export Blueprint menu item.
(Note: Exporting your scenario will not include private information or keys to your connections)
Uploading it here will look like this:
blueprint.json (12.3 KB)
2. And most importantly, Output bundles
Please provide the output bundles of the modules by running the scenario, then click the white speech bubble on the top-right of each module, save the contents as a text file, and upload it here into this discussion thread:
Providing the output bundles will allow others to replicate what is going on in the scenario even if they do not use the external service.
Following these steps will allow others to assist you here. Thanks!
Here is the blueprint:

Output bundle just has this:
I was able to make it work.
Consider the following steps:
- Ensure the correct Google album is selected
- Only use newly-uploaded photos (created/taken later than the previous item)
- Ensure the correct Discord channel is selected
The Watch Media Items only selects the next later taken item(s) by date/time. You cannot add an older photo to the album - it won’t pick those up as “new”.
It’s still not working for me. I just moved a new screenshot to the album, ran the senario, and nothing gets posted.
