To do this, click "Add trigger" in your playbook. Select the "New row added" trigger option from the dropdown menu under Google Sheets. It will enable your playbook to identify newly added rows and trigger necessary actions automatically.

If you have yet to connect your Google Sheets account to Relay.app, a prompt will guide you through the connection process.
