Sheets - Append task

The Sheets - Append task lets you append data after a specified table of data in a Google spreadsheet. New values are appended to the new row that is created after the specified table, starting with the first column of the table.

Google Sheets is one of the many cloud-based productivity solutions in Google Workspace. It allows you to create and edit online spreadsheets with real-time collaboration functionality.

  3. Understand and learn about the common terminologies used in Google Sheet.

Configure the Sheets - Append task

  1. In the Google Cloud console, go to the Application Integration page.

    Go to Application Integration

  2. In the navigation menu, click Integrations.

    The Integrations page appears listing all the integrations available in the Google Cloud project.

  3. Select an existing integration or click Create integration to create a new one.

    If you are creating a new integration:

    1. Enter a name and description in the Create Integration pane.
    2. Select a region for the integration.
    3. Select a service account for the integration. You can change or update the service account details of an integration any time from the Integration summary pane in the integration toolbar.
    4. Click Create.

    This opens the integration in the integration editor.

  4. In the integration editor navigation bar, click Tasks to view the list of available tasks.
  5. Click and place the Sheets - Append element in the integration editor.
  6. Click the Sheets - Append element on the designer to view the Sheets - Append task configuration pane.
  7. Go to Authentication, and select an existing authentication profile that you want to use.

    Optional. If you have not created an authentication profile prior to configuring the task, Click + New authentication profile and follow the steps as mentioned in Create a new authentication profile.

  8. Go to Task Input, and configure the displayed inputs fields using the following Task input parameters table.

    Changes to the inputs fields are saved automatically.

Task input parameters

The following table describes the input parameters of the Sheets - Append task:

Property Data type Description
SpreadsheetId String The ID of your spreadsheet.

You can find the ID of your spreadsheet from its web URL. For example,

Range String The A1 notation of a range to search for the desired table in the sheet.
IncludeValuesInResponse Boolean Indicates if the returned object should include the values of the cells that were appended values.
InsertDataOption enum (InsertDataOption) Indicates how the existing data will be changed when the new data is appended.
ValueInputOption enum (ValueInputOption) Indicates how the data is interpreted.


ResponseDateTimeRenderOption enum (DateTimeRenderOption) Indicates how values related to date, time, and duration is represented in the output.

Default value: SERIAL_NUMBER

ResponseValueRenderOption enum (ValueRenderOption) Indicates how the retrieved values are represented in the output.

Default value: FORMATTED_VALUE

Request JSON The request body is a ValueRange object that describes range values to write. See request JSON structure.

Task output

The Sheets - Append task returns the response output containing a AppendValuesResponse object, similar to the following sample output:

        "spreadsheetId": SPREADSHEET_ID,
        "tableRange": "Sheet1!A1:D2",
        "updates": {
          "spreadsheetId": SPREADSHEET_ID,
          "updatedRange": "Sheet1!A3:D4",
          "updatedRows": 2,
          "updatedColumns": 4,
          "updatedCells": 8,

Error handling strategy

An error handling strategy for a task specifies the action to take if the task fails due to a temporary error. For information about how to use an error handling strategy, and to know about the different types of error handling strategies, see Error handling strategies.
