my zap
 

I would like to have automatically create a new spreadsheet every month like “Andjelka Petrovic 2” next month and “andjelka Petrovic 3” the month after and make the zap perform the action(making google sheets entries for every google calendar entry) on the new file. How would you do that(if it requires coding, what is the code)?
