Hey, new to n8n and before I’m investing a bunch of time on the platform I’d like to know if my workflow, currently runing on Zapier (which is pretty costly for me) , is possible to recreate on n8n for free, assuming I want to host it on an office computer running windows 10.
The workflow: Sorting invoices from my inbox by looking for key words in the subject field and for PDF files attached (I need only the pdfs to pass through if there are a few attachments), while also ignoring a few email addresses I’ll provide. Then I’d like to format their names according to a few gmail parameters such as sender name and current date, then uploading it to a Google drive folder created automatically at the beginning of each month, then summing all the information up in Google sheets, and finally send an email with a sharing link to this month’s folder at the end of each month.
Here’s my current process on zapier:
Workflow 1: New email with attachments>Is the word invoice etc exist in the title?> sorts through every single attachment and check if mime type is PDF, then format their names>find the correct g. Drive folder for this month and upload>put a link to preview, sender name, email and execution time etc in G.Sheet.
Workflow 2: At midnight at the start of each month, get the date, format it to yyyy/mm>make a new folder with this name in g.drive> Also format current date to YYYY/MM minus one month (for finding last month folder)>find last month’s folder> Send email with share link and pre made wording: “ Hey, here are the invoices for YYYY/MM-1: LINK. “
Is it something I can accomplish for free with n8n? Thanks in advance!
