Set the Fillout trigger as “New submission”

A playbook always starts with a trigger, which is responsible for detecting changes in your connected applications and responding accordingly.

Add the Fillout trigger to initiate your playbook's actions every time there's a new submission. Click "Add trigger" in your playbook and choose "New submission" from the dropdown menu under Fillout.

If you still need to connect your Fillout account to Relay.app yet, a prompt will guide you through the process.

Add the “Create or update row” step in Google Sheets

Integrate Google Sheets automation into your playbook to automatically create a new row or update an existing one in Google Sheets every time there's a new submission in Fillout.

Click the "Add step" button, locate the “Create or update row” automation for Google Sheets, and input the mandatory and relevant details.

If your Google Sheets account still needs to be connected to Relay.app, you will be prompted to complete that connection. Make sure to allow the necessary permissions for Relay.app to sync with your Google Sheets account.

Activate your playbook

Activating the playbook is the last step in the process. Once you turn it on, it will automatically create a new row or update an existing one in Google Sheets every time there's a new submission in Fillout without requiring manual intervention.

To activate your playbook, click the toggle button at the header. Before activating, we recommend performing a test run of your playbook to ensure all the steps work seamlessly together.
