Zap Triggers on New Excel Dropbox workbook -- need to trigger on updated workbook

  • 29 December 2020

I have a Zap that triggers Formstack actions when a new Excel workbook is created in Dropbox.  I need to either:

(1) figure out how to delete the workbook after the Zap is complete -- I don’t see an action option to do that either in Dropbox or in Excel

(2) ask the Zap to trigger on an updated/modified workbook rather than a created one. 

Has anyone else tried to do this?  I currently have to manually delete the file before I trigger the zap.

FYI: Many apps don’t expose their DELETE endpoints because those actions can have negative results if used incorrectly in automations.

Excel has these available Triggers via Zapier

Just checking in to see if you still need help with this? 

Thanks.  I work around the issue by deleting the workbook and then generating a new one.  I’m told it’s not going to be an option to be able to use an updated workbook rather than a new one.
