How to Get Started with Google Sheets on Zapier

About the Google Sheets Integration

  • Admin/owner permissions: For triggers and search steps, View Only access to the spreadsheet is sufficient. For create/update actions, you must have full Edit permissions.
  • Paid/versioned account: Any version of a Google account can be used with Google Sheets.
  • Note: If you use a Google Sheets trigger, you should always turn your Zap OFF before making changes to your spreadsheet, and only turn it back on when you're finished changing the spreadsheet.

Connecting to Google Sheets

When creating a Google Sheets Zap, you will be asked to connect a new account:
Connect your Google Sheets account

Click on that. You should then get a pop-up window from Google asking you to log-in to authorize the connection between that Google Sheets account and Zapier.

Login to authorize your Google Sheets account

If you are already logged in to your Google account on your browser, you will be asked to approve access to Zapier.

Accept access to Zapier on Google Sheets

After logging in and approving access, you'll be returned back to your Zap and your Google Sheet account will now be successfully connected.
