Format for Path in Google Drive "Delete File" Action

Hi folks! 

I've searched this a few times now and can't seem to find examples / documentation on it so thought I'd pop in and ask my first question!  I'm creating a Google Drive file at the begining of my Flow, but I'd like to delete it at the end of the Flow. I've tried several different variations in the "Delete File" Google Drive connector, but none of them work - I always get, "file not found". I've tried Path, I've tried drive.google.com/Path, I've tried ... I don't know, lots of things.

Anyone out there successfully ran this function?

Thanks! 

Rhia

...Neeeevermind, I decided to just randomly try a bunch of the available tags. Turns out "FileLocator" was the one. I hadn't thought to try it since it was just a string of numbers... but... woo! Worked.

Oops, nevermind

Thanks for this @rhia - the FileLocator tag still appears to be the only successful way of deleting GD files from Flow. Thankfully i found your post, saved me a drastic rewrite 👍
