With Walls.io, you can automatically import images from any Google Drive folder onto your Wall. It's easy to achieve this with our Zapier integration. This step-by-step guide explains how it's done.

🚨 Important: This requires access to the Walls.io API, which is only included in our Premium subscription & Large event pass.

1. Sign in to your Google Drive account

To get started, sign in to your Google Drive account if you haven't already.

2. Create a new folder on your Google Drive & upload one image

Create a new folder on your Google Drive (i.e. "My folder on GD") and remember its name. Then, upload one image to that folder.

❗️Please note: It's necessary to upload just one image for now in order to establish a proper connection between Google Drive & Zapier. Upload additional images only after the Zap has been created!

The supported image formats are:

  • JPEG (*.jpg, *.jpeg, *.jfif)

  • PNG (*.png)

  • GIFs (*.gif)

3. Enable API access for your Wall

Log in to your Walls.io account and go to Settings > API and activate the access token: πŸ‘‡

4. Sign in and Connect Google Drive

In Zapier, start to create your "Zap" by clicking "Make a Zap" (a Zap is kind of a "recipe" that will connect two apps, in our case Google Drive and Walls.io). Enter a name for your Zap, i.e. "My GD Folder to Walls.io". Choose Google Drive for the trigger app and "New File in Folder" as the trigger event: πŸ‘‡

Then, choose your Google Drive account and click "Continue". You'll have to "Sign in to Google Drive" if this is your first Zap using Google Drive: πŸ‘‡

5. Choose the Folder to watch for new photos

Next, set up the trigger by selecting "My Google Drive" for Drive and selecting the folder you've created in step 2: πŸ‘‡

Afterwards, click "Test trigger": πŸ‘‡

and then click "Continue": πŸ‘‡

6. Choose "Walls.io" for the Action

Next, we're going to set up the Zapier action. Choose Walls.io for the app event and "Create Post" as the Action event:

7. Sign in to Walls.io

Afterwards, connect your Walls.io account this way: πŸ‘‡
Click "Choose an account" and then, click "Connect a new account"

You'll see a new window where you can insert the API access token of your social Wall. Copy the API access token of your Wall from step 3 and paste it into the Access Token field:

9. Setup the Action

Next, set up the Zapier action by adding a name for the User Name field. Make sure to fill out the Image field with File (Exists but not shown). πŸ‘‡ If you do not want to show the username on your wall, you can always hide it with a custom CSS snippet, which you can find in this article.

Select "True" for "Moderation Status" if you want to set your wall to Automatic Moderation. If you prefer to have Manual Moderation (=approve each post manually before it gets displayed on your social Wall), select "False".

10. Test your Zap and turn it on!

Finally, test your Zap and turn it on! πŸ‘‡
