Workflow doesn't work with query function

Your Task History ID
Hi Team,
I have a google spreadsheet (Form Responses 1) with some sample data (pic attached below:)

I have another sheet (Sheet2) within the same spreadsheet that queries data from the first sheet (Form Responses 1).


I have a workflow in pabbly (pic attached & URL mentioned below) that uses new or update Spreadsheet row as trigger & sending email as action.

If I use webhook to send data from Form Response 1, then everything works fine. If I try the same with Sheet2, then nothing works. Doesn't pabbly work with formulas ?

Awaiting your reply.

Hey @yashodhanbhatt

The Google Sheets platform utilizes straightforward data management techniques. However, it's important to note that incorporating app script or formulas is not allowed in this context. The data can only be transferred through Google Sheets to Workflow without any additional script or formula implementations.
Hi Supreme,
I understood but if that's the case then what's the use of having Google Sheets as a trigger in pabbly ?
Any standard google sheet has at least 10 columns.
Am I expected to manually enter data in all columns manually for the event to get triggered ??

If yes, then how bad is that ?
I strongly recommend that this feature be developed in pabbly.
Almost all entries get filled in google sheets through a formula only..

Awaiting your reply.

And please suggest me a workaroud too of the same.

As mentioned earlier the automation can be worked with straightforward techniques of Google Sheets if the entries were filled manually or obtained from a third-party application.

Is there any other third party application apart from Google forms that can fill google sheets automatically ??
I know of only Google Forms.
