ISO a novel file repository

ISO a novel file repository. I want my students to email me file attachments and have those files end up on a file server.

I fiddled with IFTTT and got close to a solution. Might Zapier work? Or Microsoft Flow or Google SomethingOrAnother?

    Check N8N,it’s a workflow engine that should be able to handle this.

    Followup: I’m getting it to work with Microsoft Power Automate, previously called Microsoft Flow After I got over the learning curve, it was remarkably easy to set up, and free (with a paid Office 365 subscription)

    Now when I get an email with an attachment, Power Automate grabs the attachment, renames it appropriately, and saves it in a folder on OneDrive in a particular folder depending on who sent the email to me! I can control sharing/viewing access to the OneDrive folders easily.

    Next, I’ll set up a special email address to receive attachments and done!

    PS, thanks Peter!
