  • To use this feature, you’ll need familiarity with sending HTTP requests, APIs, and reading API documentation.
  • Our Support team is able to provide basic troubleshooting for this feature, but they can't troubleshoot the API you use.

 

When creating a Custom Action, you may want to create a predefined list when you add input fields for your Custom Action.

There are two ways to create predefined lists:
  • Dynamic dropdown
  • List options

Dynamic dropdown

The Dynamic dropdown field can be created using an existing trigger available on Zapier. You can do this by adding an app’s dynamic dropdown ID.
 
You'll need to contact the Support team to find an app’s dynamic dropdown ID. Once you have this, you can proceed to set up your dynamic dropdown list.
 
To create a dynamic dropdown list:
  1. Go to the App Extension builder.
  2. Find the Custom Action and click the three dot iconnavMoreHoriz.

  8. Click Done.
  9. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save.
