Google Sheets - Watch function not triggering

I’ve setup a google sheet that received monthly updates and connected it up with make, it eventually pushes the data into airtable.

I have it all setup, there is currently data in the sheet and when I manually change a number, the scenario in Make runs flawlessly. I then trigger the tool I use to push data into the sheet, it updates all the numbers, but Make doesn’t notice the changes despite the numbers being different.

I basically want Make to look at this spread sheet once a month and update the info from the sheet into airtable, no matter what, just have the trigger be the time, not a change or new row.

Is there a way to force it to just update?

Hi. Your tool is saving the changes as raw not user input. I think you will need change the watch module by the search module and create an rule do get the data for new rows.

If you need additional support, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Hi @Ryan_Mitchell

Since you need to run the automation once a month, please use the “Search Rows” module instead of “Watch Rows”.
