Update row Webhook triggered when filtering rows...

edited 12/09/19 in Archived 2016 Posts

The update webhook got triggered if I delete rows and also when I filter in my page.


Is there any way to avoid it and get only webhook when data changes, not if a row is filtered, deleted or moved? 


I'm working wht zapier, and I get a lot of "false" updates due this issue.

    You'll also get them when moving the row to another sheet (even via the same Zap in Zapier)

    You'll need to upgrade to the premium plan that allows you to have multi-action Zaps.

    Once you have that, add a filter on something that you control, which may (in some cases) add a manual step but in most of my use cases, that was OK.


    Test test test the new Zap before going live.

    You'll still get the triggers but the results will be blocked. 

    Once fully tested, contact the nice support people at Zapier and let them know - you'll need to increase the threshold on the when the Zap is temporarily disabled pending confirmation.


    This has worked in nearly all (but not all) of my use cases.

    Hope it works for you.




    final thought: I'm not sure the Zap Update Row is waiting for a webhook, but rather polling periodically for the change to have been recorded. There's a difference - a webhook will tell Zapier that something happened and in the other Zapier asks if something happened.

    Community, if I'm wrong about this, let me know. Still learning this side of things.
