Update Trello Card from Google Sheet: index board instead of list?

  • 8 December 2021

I am having a whole lot of trouble with this Zap.

What I am trying to do is to “when row in google sheets is updated > find trello card > Update Trello Card”.

I thought this would be simple, but clearly, it is not.  I would like it to, every time I update a row in google sheets, find the appropriate Trello card in a workspace (or create one) and update it accordingly.  I would even be happy if it just indexed one board.

The problem I’m running into is that it’s requiring a list name to index.  I need it to index the whole board, not just one list.

Hi @trin.vh 

Action: Trello Find Card

Org, Board, List are NOT required fields, only Card Name


Perhaps you can show screenshots with how your Zap steps are configured to help clarify your use case issue.




Thanks for responding Troy!  Appreciate your time

It’s only happening to me when I select “Find or Create a Card”.  I figured it would try to index the whole board and then create a card in a specific list if it didn’t find it in the board, but it seems to be indexing only that list and then creating a new card in the list if it didn’t find it in that specific list.

Try these Zap steps instead...

Action: Trello - Find Card

Action: Paths (

Action: Path A - Filter (Found = TRUE)

Action: Path A - Trello - Update Card

Action: Path B - Filter (Found = FALSE)

Action: Path B - Trello - Create Card
