I’ve created a Zap which turns Typeform entries into a document.
it roughly looks like this: new typeform entry > send data to google sheet for formatting > create doc from typeform & sheets outputs > create & send to new folder
When i run a task to edit a google sheet which has been created in the zap (e.g 1.create sheet > 2.edit sheet that’s been created) it edits the original google sheet used to create the zap rather than the new one which has been created.
This happens on 2 separate google sheet tasks.
This is also happening in the create & send to new folder section. A new folder is being created, but the folder that was referenced to initially create the zap is now the folder where the files are being sent to, rather than the new folder.
To be clear, this happens when the zap automatically runs. If you click ‘Test & Review’ everything works fine.
This has never been a problem for me before.
I thought that when you make a zap, zapier knows the files, folders etc. that you are referencing in tasks actually represent the concept of “reference the file/folder which has been made in this zap” rather than literally “reference ‘File A’ every-time this zap runs”
I’ve attached reference files. the first show’s how the file ID being created is not the same spreadsheet being edited. The second & 3rd shows the same, but with folders.
