Hi, everyone,

It seems that feature request for YouTube community posts is already for some time listed for Zapier developers, if more people need this and post feature request for it maybe it gets implemented sooner? this social part of youtube is trending very much and in the near future it will surely gain popularity among other social networks, I believe. So I'm totally missing this functionality in zaps youtube actions.

In the meantime, has anyone got a workaround for it? I wish to post from Google Sheets to Youtube community section but am not familiar in using webhooks or if there is any other workaround?

Thanks for that clarification @robschmidt! It’s definitely difficult for the average person to know what’s possible (but not yet implemented on Zapier) versus what can’t be done because the API doesn’t support it.

Ahh I read they are so slow with deciding over the years between channel comments, then discussions and now community posts. Including API for these...

Hi @Vesna 

Upon some research, figured out it’s youtube who hasn’t opened up their API yet to be able to Post or Retrieve data from community. Zapier can only do within what’s doable through the API.
