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.

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?
