How to avoid webhook triggering from cell format updates???

I'm using to do some automations when certain columns in a row are updated.

Works great until someone re-aligns the columns and updates 1500 cells at once, sending my webhook 1500 requests. I can filter them out by detecting the actual data cell history, but it still uses 3000 operations for no reason and ties up my process for however long that takes to go through.

I need to detect cell creation or update. I have a subscope set for just the columns I want. But I can't block these false updates from triggering it.

If anyone is familiar with or even just a way to block formatting changes from being sent to a webhook you will be my hero.


PS- sometimes it will send over 10k requests, even though I only had 1500 cells change format, so I don't know what's up with that either.
