Send email with pdf attachment every month

Describe the problem/error/question

Hello, I am trying to do a project that consists of monitoring customer folders, each folder receives a pdf file monthly, I wanted to make an automation that sent this pdf to the customer. As a new file will be added every month this would need to run monthly, only with several different clients

What is the error message (if any)?

the problem with this process is that I can’t figure out how to retrieve the files locally, nor with google drive

Please share your workflow

(Select the nodes on your canvas and use the keyboard shortcuts CMD+C/CTRL+C and CMD+V/CTRL+V to copy and paste the workflow.)

Share the output returned by the last node

Information on your n8n setup

  • n8n version:
  • Database (default: SQLite):
  • n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main):
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app):
  • Operating system:

You might want to start by deciding what your N8N environment will be - Self hosted or cloud - and then start looking at the integration nodes such as Read binary data, and Google drive accessibility.

The functions that I think you are describing are not uncommon, but you will need to build up a bit of background on how you want to achieve the end goal.
