    Sure! Just use a Join Send Push action and use the link in the URL field.

    @joaomgcd moving this discussion to the relevant project

    ok so using the new project and adding
    alpha/beta/
    or
    /alpha/beta/
    to %par2
    results in a new file being created in a alpha folder called beta (with no extension)

    Did you update the tasks from the other project? This project uses the tasks from the other one so if you update the other tasks these ones should start working correctly.

    both direct link service in this project and Create Drive File in the other project. They both do the same thing, upload a file. Sorry i am not sure how to use them together. they both specify a file to upload and a location to upload them to.
    How do i use them together or do i need to use one of the other ones?

    sorry, this is all quite new to me.

    Thanks so much for helping out

    The tasks in this project use the tasks in the other project :) This project won't work at all without the other one. So if you delete the tasks from the other project for example, this won't work.
    In short, update the tasks from the other project and this one should start working with the new feature as well.

    To be safe just delete all the tasks from both projects and re-import them all again :p
    Then run the Share Text Google Drive task but in the second action of that task change Parameter 2 to testing/

    The AutoTools part is just used to pick a file. If you want you can just set the file path manually. :)

    ok so i am slowly beginning to understand.
    Share test google drive runs Direct link google drive which runs Create Drive File which runs Find drive folder id.
    I have done what you recommended, reinstalled both xmls and just changed %par2 in the Share test google drive to testing/
    when i run Share test google drive it creates a directory "testing" and uploads the correct image file but names it testing (no extension), then brings back a shareable link as expected.

    Only thing left to understand is how to maintain the uploaded file name and extension...
    so i guess somehow specifying the filename in %par1...

    im wondering if we need to change this part to reference %par1 and not %par2

    -<Action sr="act7" ve="7">

    <code>547</code>

    <label>File name is the last part in the full path</label>

    <Str sr="arg0" ve="3">%drivefilename</Str>

    <Str sr="arg1" ve="3">%par2(<)</Str>

    <Int sr="arg2" val="0"/>

    <Int sr="arg3" val="0"/>

    </Action>
