Loosing the mapping in a google spreadsheet

  • 13 November 2020

I had a great zap triggered by the adding of a new line in a google spreadsheet.

At one moment, I don’t know why, all the mapping got screwed up.

In the zap, instead of having the names of the columns, it switched to labels like COL1, COL2, etc.

Why does this happen and how to switch it back to column name mapping ?

Thank you !

Be well

Hi there! 


Did you change the configuration of the spreadsheet? 

Unfortunately, google sheets uses rows and columns as identifying factors, not column titles. Once you configure the integration in Zapier the column configuration can’t change in Google Sheets or your mapping will get messed up. You can refresh the fields in a step (if it’s an action step) or load more data (if it’s a trigger step) to force Zapier to fetch the data again to help in reconfiguring.
