Published on Feb 28th, 2024

Integrating Webflow CMS with Google Sheets through Zapier is an excellent way to automate and streamline your website's data management processes. Here's how you can set up this powerful integration in a few easy steps.

Step 1: Prepare Your Webflow CMS
Ensure that your Webflow CMS Collections are properly set up and that you have the required Collection fields for the data you wish to send to Google Sheets.

Step 2: Set Up Your Google Sheets
Create a new Google Sheet or select an existing one. Layout your spreadsheet with column headers that match your Webflow CMS Collection field names.

Step 3: Create a Zapier Account
Go to Zapier's website and sign up for an account. Zapier will be the bridge between Webflow CMS and Google Sheets.

Step 4: Make a New Zap
Within your Zapier dashboard, click on 'Make a Zap' and choose Webflow as the trigger app. Select the appropriate trigger from the list provided by Zapier, such as 'New Form Submission' in Webflow.

Step 5: Connect Webflow to Zapier
Follow the prompt to connect your Webflow account to Zapier. This usually involves logging in to your Webflow account and providing Zapier with access.

Step 6: Set Up the Trigger
Define the specific trigger in Webflow, like a new form submission or a new live item in a Collection.

Step 7: Choose Action App as Google Sheets
After setting up the trigger, search for Google Sheets in the action step and select the appropriate action such as 'Create Spreadsheet Row'.

Step 8: Connect Google Sheets to Zapier
You will need to give Zapier access to your Google account and select the specific Google Sheet and worksheet you'd like to use.

Step 9: Map Out the Data
Map the fields from your Webflow CMS to the corresponding columns in your Google Sheet. This will ensure that the data flows seamlessly from one to the other.

Step 10: Test and Activate Your Zap
Always test the Zap to ensure it's working correctly. If the test is successful, go ahead and activate your Zap.

Now, new data from your Webflow CMS will automatically be updated to your Google Sheets, enabling you to manage your content more effectively and efficiently.
