Send your video responses to Google Drive or Dropbox

You can easily download the .mp4 files of any of your video responses from within your inbox. However, if you are receiving many video responses, it can be useful to centralize the video footage outside of VideoAsk for further editing and use.

Using Zapier, you can automatically send video responses from a multi step videoask to a Google Drive or Dropbox folder.

Note: This article assumes the use of multiple steps within your videoask. If you only have a single step, there is no need for the Code action (steps 5-8). 

Set up a VideoAsk to Google Drive zap in Zapier

Note: For this example we will use Google Drive. The zap configuration for Dropbox is similar except where noted.

1.

8.

In the Code field, Paste:

output = {}
username = input_data['contact_name'].replace(' ', '')
contact_hash = input_data['contact_id'][:4]
for i in range(1,8):
output[f'named_field_{i}'] = f'{username}_{i}_{contact_hash}.mp4'

This code snippet is designed for a 7 step videoask. Update "for i in range(1,8):" to match the number of steps in your videoask. The range should be the number of steps in your videoask + 1.
