I am trying to put a menu into a google sheets file where my client can access the sheets file online and make instant changes. I was able to achieve integrating zapier to make changes to menu items but there are two things I just can’t figure out:

  1. I am trying to figure out a way to delete cms items through the google sheets, I have no idea where to even start with this. 2. ( The most important) Whenever I create a new cms item with a new row in sheets, it does create a cms item and makes it go live, but I cannot figure out a way to have that new item send over that newly created ITEM ID over to the excel sheet. Please help thank you.

Hi @Helix Media 

For Item #2, the Zap action step should return the CMS Item ID.

Then you can use this action: GSheets - Update Row

For Item #1, not sure if that’s possible with the currently available Webflow actions


Hello, is there any way you could go into more detail with the Item 2 response? I have tried to update the row, it's all just a bit confusing.

Hi @Helix Media You need to map the row ID from the trigger step to the row in the GSheet Update Step.

Please reference this Zapier Basics help article about configuring dynamic data points in action steps:
