I can’t for the life of me figure out why I’m having such inconsistency between when I trigger a zap and the time it takes to update. Sometimes I add content to a spreadsheet and it works immediately. Immediately after I can add content and it doesn’t work unless I turn the zap on and then off again. And right after that I can add content like just moments ago and nothing happens at all. Why won’t this update? I’m not adding a lot of data and there’s nothing in my task lists. What’s the problem????
It’s Google Sheets you’re using, right?
There are quite a lot of ‘rules’ to follow otherwise your zap might not work correctly - I’ve detailed them in this blog post of mine: How to stop your Google Sheets zaps breaking
Doing the following things while a Google Sheets zap is switched on might cause errors
- Adding rows anywhere other than to the bottom of your sheet.
- Deleting or moving any existing rows.
- Doing any sort of sorting on the sheet.
- Renaming, rearranging or adding any new columns except for to the right of existing columns.
Does that apply to you?
