Automatically update a row or add a new row to your OneDrive worksheet based on your completed Form with the "Upsert to OneDrive Using a Completed Form" recipe. You’ll find the process of updating or adding rows based on their condition referred to as upserting.

This Workflow enables you to automatically pull data from transmitted Forms into your connected OneDrive worksheet.

During this process, you'll need to reference your Table Name. Your Table Name is different than your Sheet name. If you don't have a table within your selected OneDrive Workbook, you'll need to create a table.

After you've created a table, open the Table Design drop-down menu. You'll find a text box with your table name on the left-hand side of the menu.

This is the Table Name you'll reference when setting up this Workflow.

Set up this Workflow recipe in the GoFormz web app’s Workflows tab. Here you’ll click Create to navigate to the Workflow Recipes Library where you’ll complete the following steps:

  1. Select the Upsert to OneDrive Using a Completed Form recipe.
