Hey there! Thanks so much for reaching out with this request. While it is not currently possible to attach files using the Gmail Pack, we are tracking a feature request for this! I will go ahead and formally add votes for each of you in our feature request tracker.
If anybody else would like their vote formally tracked for this feature request, please reach out to email@example.com with answers to the following questions:
What value does this new feature unlock? What does this help you accomplish?
On a scale of 1 to 4 (1 = nice to have, 4 = absolutely must have), how badly would you say you need this feature?
How would you describe what you’re trying to build with this feature? (Project tracker, blog, client facing resource, etc.)
Should this feature be built, we’ll be sure to reach out in this thread. We apologize for any inconvenience in the meantime!
In the immediate use case I’m sending payment receipts and acknowledgment letters, but I can think of numerous other similar use cases.
4 out of 4 - I originally had this as 2 out of 4 because I thought I could just do it through make.com/zapier - but I’ve just discovered that this is not possible as Coda does not provide the file to make.com (only the filename), so right now I cannot find any way to work with files externally from a table, which is going to become a serious bottleneck for various workflows - please provide some mechanism to allow this as it seems unnecessarily limiting, which really isn’t the normal MO for Coda.
It’s a client interaction resource, sending emails to clients, stakeholders, etc
I did find this solution yesterday after writing this comment, and it does work with make.com (and presumably zapier).
My concern is that the hidden _Merge function is now being indicated as deprecated, so I’m quite concerned it will stop working soon.
