Hi,

I want to have a lookup table in a Google Sheet, that when a slack reaction happens, it will look up the reaction in a table, and will be able to paste the relevant data in the corresponding Google Sheet.

What data do I need in the table that will work when I put it in the “Worksheet” field in the Set Up Action. I tried just putting the Sheet name, but it doesn’t seem to work.

Any ideas? If it’s the worksheet Id, where can I find that?

Thanks in advance!

Hi @Ilan B 

Can you please post screenshots of how your Zap step is configured?

You should be able to select the Worksheet ID from the dropdown field, after selecting the Spreadsheet field.

Worksheet ID can be found in the browser URL, same goes for the Spreadsheet ID.

Hi @Troy Tessalone,

I don’t have Worksheet ID as an option.

Thanks

Worksheet is a dropdown field to select from.

Try clicking the [Refresh Fields] button.

Hi @Troy Tessalone,

Thanks again for all your help. Decided it was easier to make a short video of where I am stuck.

Ok. After doing some more research, I don’t think it’s possible based on this:

Let me know if I am wrong.

Hi @Ilan B!

Can you take a look at this Community article to see if it helps:

There may be a way to do it, but it’s not super obvious.

Thanks @nicksimard,

I did something like this, but based on this article.

Same same ;)
