NPS is one of the most important metrics your team can measure. Send all NPS submissions directly to Google Sheets, so that your team can follow along and take action on feedback submissions in real-time!
Note: This Zap requires a paid Zapier plan.
Before creating the Zap, you will want to create a Google Sheet spreadsheet that contains columns for each property that you would like to track. In this guide, we will have columns for:
- User ID
- NPS Score
- NPS Feedback
Feel free to add any other columns that are relevant to your team!
Step 1: Select Appcues Trigger
Step 2: Select “NPS Submission” Event
Step 3: Connect your Appcues Account
Check out our Using Appcues and Zapier article for more information on connecting to your Appcues account.
Step 4: Test Trigger
There are two corresponding events for the NPS Submission Trigger. Your test should return two sample events, one for NPS Score and one for NPS Feedback.
If the test does not return two events, you may need to trigger these events in your application.
Step 5: Select the nps_score Sample Event
Step 1: Select Google Sheets Action
Step 2: Select “Lookup Spreadsheet Row” Action
Step 3: Connect your Google Sheets Account
Step 4: Connect to Specific Google Sheet

Step 5: Choose the Lookup Column and Value
Lookup Column: select the name of the column that should hold a unique identifier for your users (eg: User ID).
2. Lookup Value: select the field in the sample event that holds the unique identifier.
Step 6: Create Google Sheets Spreadsheet Row if it doesn’t exist
- Check the “Create Google Sheets Spreadsheet Row if it doesn’t exist” box.
2. Select the field in the sample event that corresponds with the unique identifier, timestamp, and NPS score columns.
3. Remove extra fields.
4. Return back to the Zap trigger, select the nps_feedback sample event, and click “Continue with selected record”.
5. Return to Lookup Spreadsheet Row in Google Sheets Action and select the field in the sample event that corresponds with the NPS feedback column.
Step 7: Test the Action
Step 8: Create Update Spreadsheet Row in Google Sheets Action
Step 9: Connect Action to Google Sheets
Using the inputs in step 4, connect to your Google Sheet.
Step 10: Select Row to Update
After the Lookup action is completed, if the row already existed in your spreadsheet before the Zap ran, the Update Spreadsheet Row action will use that row ID to update the existing row. Here's how to select the row ID:
- Select “Custom” in the Row dropdown menu.
- Click “Lookup Spreadsheet Row in Google Sheets”.
- Choose ID.
