Hi @Backbone 

Good question.

GSheets need to be configured in a specific way to be used in Zaps.

Make sure to review the available help articles for using GSheets in Zaps:

Also, I’d recommend using Airtable instead of GSheets.

You can create a relational database by linking records across Tables.

Plus, the better way to structure the data would be to have 1 “Date” record per row, rather than multiple “Dates” per row.
