    Hello turabhassan,

    I have done this testing several times earlier and did one more testing just now. My finding is that adding any new columns will not break your integration. But any existing fields should not be touched. If you have 5 columns in your integrated google spreadsheet, you should not do any changes / add any column in between. You should always add columns after the last columns in your spreadsheet.

    If you do any changes in the existing set of columns it will cause the integration to break.

    Thank you!
