Step by step guide:

1. In this tutorial we will show you how you can use your OneDrive file as a source file in PDF.co and Zapier. If you are not the owner of the file make sure that you have been granted access to use the file.

To begin, let’s choose the OneDrive as the App and the New File as the Trigger Event. Every time someone uploads a New File in your OneDrive it will be the trigger to run this Zap.
