Do Custom Labels show up in IFTTT recipes that use a spreadsheet?

I see that I can now label a trip as work, home or school. Does this get sent to the "spreadsheet" to make it useful for tracking purposes?

Hi Walter, are you talking about the spreadsheet from our own app or the one IFTTT generates? I know IFTTT doesn't support labels in Google documents but I'll have to check in about ours.

I am using the IFTTT spreadsheet. Didn't know Automatic did it's own. I will look for a resource.

Wait, the IFTTT channel doesn't support the labels?  How about the new business trip tagging?  Can we get an update to the IFTTT channel?

Also, I think now that I have more than one vehicle using Automatic, I need the IFTTT channel to be capable of selecting the specific car, so that each car gets its own recipes.  My wife's car isn't necessarily traveling for work while mine may be for example. (At the moment I switch between two recipes for my car [biz and personal]).

Hi All, 

Automatic Dashboard Export
The export to spreadsheet functionality that Ani mentioned above as a built in feature from Automatic exists on our web dashboard at .  In the lower right hand corner there is a button labeled export. Custom names will not show up there.  And as of this writing, neither will business tags.  We're working on a version that will show business tags and include them in the export. This is working on our internal staging server now and should be QA'd and released within a few weeks.  Note this new dashboard will still not support the custom named fields.

IFTTT Custom Labels
Not supported. We haven't exposed these as endpoints yet for IFTTT to implement.  And in truth, the custom labels concept needs a bit of a redesign at the architecture level before we push it out to third parties.

Trip tags on the other hand are included in our trip objects already and while not implemented on IFTTT yet potentially could be.
