Troubleshooting

If you Send data and it doesn't appear on the Spreadsheet source card check the following:

On the Spreadsheet Side

  • The Hook URL configured on the Instadeq Spreadsheet Add-on is correct

    • Check if it has any extra or missing characters

    • Try removing the current Hook URL and paste it again from Instadeq's Hook list

On the Instadeq Side

  • The Hook URL configured on the Instadeq Spreadsheet Add-on still exists in the Hooks list

  • The Hook points to the right channel

  • The Spreadsheet source card is set to persistent and has the same channel as the Hook you are using
