Hi @silveirajoao ,

Thanks for reaching out- sorry you’re being bombarded with notifications here!

To help us dig in, can you send a screenshot of your configuration? 

Also, am I correct that you are looking for a Slack message to populate when the price changes for any of the products within your GoogleSheeet?

There are 11 collumns in my sheet. Each represents some category of products. The lines represents the price of some seller for that product. 


     Product X  Product Y 

Seller A    2,0       2,3

Seller B    1,9       2,6

Seller C     2,3      2,5


I want to send a slack message in a channel when some line has a update. Then I created eleven triggers. 

When this happens..

1. New or Updated Spreadsheet Row in Google Sheets

Do this …

2. Send Channel Message in Slack


But after a while, there a bug that creates hundreads of tasks and messages. I dont know why it is happenning.
