Google Drive Insert Row is gone

I wonder if the action has been disabled or is an Flow API error.

Ideas? I wonder if the roadmap is to have the action *only for* onedrive excel files.

Hi,
Sorry for the trouble. I am investigating this issue. Meanwhile i can suggest a work around to unblock you.
Google drive "Insert Row" action allows you to use google spreadsheet, stored on your google drive account. It is different from using excel file, stored on your google drive.

 

You can insert rows to an excel file stored on your google drive. Following the below steps-

 

1. Create a excel file and save it in your google drive account. (You need to define a table in your excel file. Most commonly users miss this part, Please refer this thread for information on creating table in excel- https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Flow-Forum/Should-not-to-be-so-complicated/m-p/3063#U3063).

 

2. Click on ... icon besides File name. This would popup a file browser which can be used to browse the excel file in your google drive account.
3. Select the table you want to use (Click on down arrow to popup the dropdown)
4. After selecting the table you will see some new fields on the excel card. A new input field would be added for each column in your table.
5. Specify the values for table column fields.

 

I am actively working on google drive missing "Insert Row Action". Will update you on that soon.

@Lalit @jlocatellGoogle Drive "Insert Row Action" is still missing, right? I cannot find it, and just guessing.. either it has been permanently removed or there is some sort of issue with my account.

By choosing "Google Drive" I can currently see 11 actions

Thank you in advance!

Oops! I already found it under "Google Sheets" collection

Sorry!
