Hi there - I'm working with google sheets, creating multiple actions within one zap.
My problem is - the initial trigger causes worksheet A to be copied - let's call this worksheet B. What I would like to then do is set further actions against worksheet B. The problem is, at the point of me create the zap, worksheet B does not yet exist.
Is there any way to do this? Any thoughts/help/advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hey there, I have to be honest, and I normally opt to just not solve this problem with Google sheets.
It’s not that it’s unsolvable, it’s just that there are SO many edge cases, and nothing you build on Google Sheets is remotely repeatable on other projects.
The way I would opt to solve this particular problem is by using Airtable - The reason is because what you need to solve this particular problem is the concept of a “Record ID” which you can certainly create in Google Sheets, but unfortunately it never works the way you want it to, because of the way Zaps trigger off it.
This is just advice based on having built many solutions on both Airtable and G-Sheets. Airtable just works the way you want it to
