What is the proposed idea/solution?

Please make it possible to sync the google drive in an automation or from an API call as an extra option beside just the 5 minute interval or manual click in the airtable><Google Drive table that is currently available.

How does is solve the user problems?

When you are designing workflows in an airtable interface and the flow is touching on a document that is created and then stored in a google drive, your workflow is automatically interupted now until the sync is completed between airtable and Google drive before you can work with the data from the newly created document. The only way to bypass this lagg currently is by manually going into the table and press the "sync now" button. However, in many use cases (including mine), you dont want the customer to go into the data part of airtable. 

How was this validated?

I have been looking online and the only somewhat relevant info is on how to keep the table "alive" by setting up an automation on an interval. But that doesnt solve the problem as it still requires you to wait a few minutes for the sync to automatically occur.

Who is the target audience?

Workflow designers who have customers who only get access to interfaces or external access (like softr, make etc.)
