How does this automation work?

Bardeen's automation playbook for Slack and Google Sheets enables businesses to streamline data communication by automatically sending updates about spreadsheet metrics. This particular automation assists in monitoring data changes by counting the rows of a Google Sheet and relaying that information through a Slack message, making it ideal for tracking project progress, inventory levels, or customer queries in real-time.

Here's how this workflow sends a Slack message with the row count from a Google Sheet:

  • Step 1: Retrieve Google Sheet Data - Fetch the entire content of a specific Google Sheets spreadsheet as a table.
  • Step 2: Select Column to Count - Convert the selected column from the retrieved table into an array in preparation for counting.
  • Step 3: Count Rows in Column - Calculate the number of elements within the array, effectively counting the rows of your chosen column.
  • Step 4: Prepare Message Content - Create a text string that includes the row count to be sent in the Slack message.
  • Step 5: Send Slack Message - Deliver the message to the specified Slack user or channel, providing an immediate update on the row count.
