Continue only if a Google Sheets column matches a different sheet's column

Hello - I would like to send a follow up reminder text for those who have not completed step 2. Step 1’s data sits in a GSheet1-Tab A-column B and Step 2’s data sits in GSheet1-Tab B-column B. I’d only want to send the follow up text if the user’s info is not found in TabB-column B within 48 hours. I cannot figure out how to compare two sheets’ data


Thank you!

Hi @sheilatc 

Good question.


Try these Zap steps with GSheets:

  1. Trigger: ???
  2. Action: Delay
    1. 48 hours
  3. Action: GSheets - Lookup Row
    1. Continue whether Row is found or not
  4. Action: Filter
    1. Only continue if Row is found in previous step
  5. Action: ???




I’d recommend using Airtable instead of GSheets.

Airtable has Formula fields that can be used to calculate the difference between 2 dates. e.g. static date VS NOW()


Airtable has Views.

Views can have Filters.

Views can be used to trigger Zaps.
