Google Sheet extension webhook - webhook doesn't active when MAKE makes the change

Hi everyone

So I’ve built this scenario where it starts with a Watch Changes in Google sheet.
I’ve added the extension to the actual Google Sheet and added the proper webhook from the Watch Changes module.

Now this is where it gets wired. The webhook works perfectly fine when the changes that are made are manual, but when Make makes the changes, the trigger doesn’t work, it doesn’t trigger.

Basically, I have other scenarios that finish with Add a Row module and populate the same sheet that this Google Sheet Webhook is connected to (needless to say that Make populates it), and I need the webhook to trigger as soon as those changes are made.

But as soon as I do anything manually myself in this sheet, the webhook works flawlessly.

Did anyone ever deal with this issue?

Any help/idea/solution will be helpful

Thank you!

According to the official documentation for the Watch Changes module,

The module only watches for changes made in the Google Sheets app by the user. Script executions and API requests do not trigger this module. The module does not watch for newly added rows to the sheet.

There is no known workaround for this, except to use the polling “Watch New Rows” trigger.

I’m sure others would agree that this is a nice feature to have.

You can submit this suggestion to the Idea exchange, under App improvement ideas.

Don’t forget to search for it first, just in case someone already suggested it, so that you don’t end up creating a duplicate.

Got it.
I guess I’ll have to use a different type of trigger for this scenario

Thank you!
