Zapier: Export actions to Google Sheets spreadsheets

Learn how to create a Zap to automatically export action data into a Google Sheets spreadsheet.

What is Zapier?

Zapier is a software platform that allows you to create workflows, called Zaps, to automate repetitive tasks between services.

Take note

  • This Zap utilizes Google Sheets as the solution to store action data, it can be interchanged with other connectors such as Microsoft Excel Online.

  • The data that gets exported is based on the actions your account has access to.

  • You will need to create a Google Sheets spreadsheet beforehand with column headers for the action data you want to export. For each header, label each response you want to export. An example of a Google Sheets spreadsheet for Actions data.
