How to add reply text from a thread in Slack to a new row in Google Sheets?

Has anyone found a way to have a thread in slack create a new row in sheets with the thread message as the words?

 

I have a zap set up so a formatted message in a private channel triggers a new row. I have also set it up to have the thread reply trigger a new row, but the new row triggered by the thread only says the text of the original message. I’d like the thread to trigger a new row with the thread reply message.

 

the trigger message

 

the trigger outcome

 

 

 

 

 

Thread reply (the second trigger)



 
second outcome (original message is inserted again)

I’d like for A2 to say “test pt 2”

Hi @abp 

Can you post screenshots of how your Zap steps are configured?

 

trigger

 
filter (so not all messages make new rows, and we can mark relevant ones for new rows)

 
columns in the sheet
