Published on Feb 28th, 2024

Automating your workflows can significantly enhance productivity, especially when it involves transferring data between apps like Zapier and Google Sheets. Zapier acts as a conduit, seamlessly pushing data, including dates, from various triggers to your spreadsheets. Here’s how you can add dates to Google Sheets using Zapier, simplifying your data management tasks and boosting efficiency.

Step-by-Step Guide to Add Dates to Google Sheets with Zapier

  1. Create a Zapier Account: If you haven't already, sign up for a Zapier account at to get started.

  2. Choose Your Trigger App: Set up the trigger from the app where your data originates. This could be from an email, form submission, or any other supported Zapier app.

  3. Set Up the Trigger: Customize the trigger specifics according to your requirements—for instance, selecting 'New Email' if your trigger is email-based.

  4. Choose Google Sheets as Your Action App: After your trigger is set, search for and select Google Sheets as the action that occurs in response to the trigger.

  5. Customize Google Sheets Action: You will be prompted to choose a specific action such as 'Create Spreadsheet Row'. Select the one that aligns with your needs.

  6. Connect Your Google Sheets Account: Authorize Zapier to access your Google Sheets, ensuring proper permissions are granted for the necessary actions.

  7. Set up Template: This is where you'll tell Zapier how to input the data into your spreadsheet. Select the spreadsheet and the specific sheet where the data will go.

  8. Insert Date Field: In the template, match up the fields from your trigger app to the columns in your Google Sheet. For the date, you'll choose the appropriate date field from your trigger app and map it to the corresponding column in Google Sheets.

  9. Test Your Zap: Before going live, always test the Zap to make sure everything is working as expected. If the test is successful, the date will be added to your Google Sheet.

  10. Turn on Your Zap: Once you're happy with the setup and test results, turn your Zap on to automate the process.

By following these steps, you'll eliminate the need for manual data entry when adding dates or any other information to Google Sheets. Not only does this save time, but it also reduces errors and streamlines your operations.
