Hi @ZoloT 

Welcome to the Community!

To help you further on this and be able to suggest workarounds, do you have a specific use case that I could help out with? If you can phrase it in the “When A happens in Service X, B should happen in Service Y” format, that’ll help me make sure I give you the best suggestion possible, so thank you in advance!

I want to make sure we're on the same page so I can point you in the right direction!


Hi @Brem,

  1. When Schedule by Zapier is trigger time: midnight
  2. in Google Sheets: Find MyWorksheet
  3. Export MyWorksheet as csv to Google Drive
  4. In google drive: Find MyWorksheet.csv
  5. In EASYFTP: Publish MyWorksheet.csv

Hey there @ZoloT,

I’m jumping in to see if I can help!

Here is how I see the Zap for the workflow that you have in mind:

  1. Trigger: Schedule by Zapier
  2. Action: Google Drive (Find a File)
  3. Action: EasyFTP (Upload a File)

Would this help you out? Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks! 😊

Thanks @ken.a !

Almost there - not sure how to do step 2

  1. Trigger: Schedule by Zapier
  2. How do I open a googlesheet > export to csv
  3. Action: Google Drive (Find a File)
  4. Action: EasyFTP (Upload a File)

Hi @ZoloT I did some searching and found a previous response on a similar request from the past

Use the GDrive Find File action step in the Zap to get the CSV version of the GSheet.

Using Files in Zaps

Does this help fulfil your request? Let me know, happy to come back and keep working on this!
