Add a row in a google spreadsheet that was created inside the same flow

Raised on behalf of a customer.

I am attempting to create a flow which sets up my monthly orders spreadsheet. In side a flow, I have created a scheduled event with the following sequence:

Schedule -> create GSheet -> create sheet (advanced mode) using ID of created sheet -> Create row ??

The only way to reference the newly created spreadsheet from the CreateSheet node is to switch to advanced mode and then I can create a new sheet using the ID of the spreadsheet created in the first node.

I wanted to use the same technique in the create row node to set up the headers for my sheet, eg Name, Part Number, Quantity etc. However, as it has no advanced mode there is no way to reference the spreadsheet using the ID.

I have the same issue with createRow in another flow...I need to dynamically provide the spreadsheet name based on the month rather than an pre-existing spreadsheet. I'll also need to provide the sheet name which would be Orders.

    Thanks for opening this RFE. This is a valid request on our backlog. We will review this in our future planning. Also please review the latest feature of Mapping Assist available as part of our Cloud Pak for Integration if that helps in large mappings.
