    Triggering a script on Google Spreadsheet

    Asked by dkanotister on June 11, 2015 at 12:06 PM


    I have implemented Google Apps script triggers for all types there are (simple, installable), both with change/edit/form submit types. They work fine when I change the sheet.

    However none of them work when JotForm submits a new row to the sheet.

    Is this supposed to work? Or is the integration done in such a manner that the Google Apps Script triggers are not ever executed?
