Integrating Formidable Forms and Zapier: Accessing Timestamp Data

When utilizing Formidable Forms in combination with Zapier for workflow automation, one often needs to access specific data fields, such as the 'timestamp' of form submission. To ensure accurate data retrieval and automation efficiency, follow the steps below to access the 'timestamp' form field from Formidable Forms within Zapier.

Step 1: Set Up The Formidable Form

Before you begin with Zapier, make sure your Formidable Forms setup is complete and includes a 'timestamp' field that records submission times.

Step 2: Create a Zapier Trigger

  • Log in to your Zapier account and create a new Zap.

  • Choose Formidable Forms as the trigger app.

  • Connect your Formidable Forms account if you haven't already done so.

Step 3: Select Your Form

  • Pick the form you want to work with from the dropdown menu.

Step 4: Find The Data

  • After setting up the trigger, Zapier will fetch a sample submission from your selected form. During this sample, identify the field that corresponds to the 'timestamp'.

Step 5: Accessing The Timestamp Field

  • In the action step of your Zap, you will map the data from the Formidable Forms trigger.

  • Locate the specific 'timestamp' field by matching field IDs or labels provided in the sample data.

Step 6: Test and Continue

  • Perform a test to ensure the 'timestamp' data is being pulled correctly.

  • Once confirmed, proceed with setting up your Zap's action steps.

By following these simple steps, you can seamlessly access and utilize the 'timestamp' data from Formidable Forms in your automated workflows using Zapier. If additional help is required, consult the documentation for both platforms or reach out to their respective support teams.

Remember, the 'timestamp' field can be a vital piece of data when organizing, tracking, and initiating subsequent processes, so accessing it correctly is crucial for the integrity of your automated systems.
