How to download a video from Google Drive and upload it to LinkedIn?

I’m trying to set up a simple automation to:

  • watch a shared Google Drive for a video file
  • download the video file
  • upload the video file to LinkedIn as a video post

The first module runs fine. (Attached.)
But the download doesn’t seem to do anything.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

(Background: This is my second automation, and first time using the Drive modules.)

Here’s the setup for the Download a File module:

Welcome to the Make community!

You’ll need to right-click the trigger module and select where to start from.


If you selected “From now on”, only newly uploaded files will be detected when you turn on your scenario, and a “Check run” will occur every scheduled interval (default 15 mins).

If you want to learn more about Make, you can read up in the Help Center. I also recommend doing the tutorials in the Make Academy, and learn advanced skills like how to make custom apps to any API in the Make Partner Training Portal - both have certificates for successful completion.


Brilliant, thank you!
