The Operattion "Add a Row" adds new rows on Top of locked Rows, instead of Bottom on Google Sheets

Hi guys, I am building a simple CRM on Google Sheets and I have a problem with the “Add a Row” Operation.

I have locked the first row containing all my headers, but when the automation runs, the new row is added to the top of the headers, instead of at bottom, and the rows get locked together.

This is what I’m getting.

The Table contains headers option is set to Yes and all parameters are pretty well set.

I know that there are similar questions in the community, but their answers can’t work for my case.

Can anyone help me, please?

This is actually a very common mistake.

Simply put something in cell A1 so that Make doesn’t think that row is empty.
