New Slack message creates new row in google sheets - new columns from comma separated values?

Userlevel 1

I want a zap to create a new row in a google sheet every time a new slack message is added to a channel.

Ideally, I’d like the text of the slack message to flow into different columns when separated by commas.


so for the Slack message: apples, oranges, bananas

apples would go in column one

oranges would go in column two 

bananas would go in column three

all in the same row.


i am not a coder at all, so hopefully this can be done more easily than that.

i’ve tried using formatter to get text-to-line item, and that seems to work, but then i can’t seem to get those separate line items in google sheets.

Hi @svw 

Try using Formatter > Text > Split configured as seen in the first screenshot.

Then you can map the different outputs as seen in the bottom screenshot.
