Getting Started

This integration creates a workflow with a GitHub trigger and Google Sheets action. When you configure and deploy the workflow, it will run on Pipedream's servers 24x7 for free.

  1. Select this integration
  2. Configure the New Card in Column (Classic Projects) trigger
    1. Connect your GitHub account
    2. Select a Repository
    3. Select a Project
    4. Select a Column
  3. Configure the Add Single Row action
    1. Connect your Google Sheets account
    2. Optional- Select a Drive
    3. Select a Spreadsheet
    4. Select a Sheet Name
    5. Select a Does the first row of the sheet have headers?
  4. Deploy the workflow
  5. Send a test event to validate your setup
  6. Turn on the trigger

Details

This integration uses pre-built, open source components from Pipedream's GitHub repo. These components are developed by Pipedream and the community, and verified and maintained by Pipedream.

To contribute an update to an existing component or create a new component, create a PR on GitHub. If you're new to Pipedream component development, you can start with quickstarts for trigger span and action development, and then review the component API reference.

Action

Description:Add a single row of data to Google Sheets
Version:2.0.9
Key:google_sheets-add-single-row

Google Sheets Overview

Some examples of things you can build using the Google Sheets API include:

  • A web app that lets users input data into a Google Sheet
  • A script that automatically updates a Google Sheet with data from another
    source
  • A tool that generates graphs and charts from data in a Google Sheet
  • A service that sends data from a Google Sheet to another API or application
