Common Problems with Capsule

Received an error about missing Party id or email#

Several of the actions in Capsule have a couple form fields that look like this:

Party ID form fields

To successfully use these actions, your Zap needs to fill in one of those two fields (if you fill in both, the email will be used). Most of the time you will want to use the email field since it is unlikely your trigger will have the id generated by Capsule.

Simply map an email address field from your trigger that corresponds to the person or organization email address in Capsule, and you will be all set!

When sending date strings from Capsule, some return null data.#

Tasks can populate with dueDate or dueDateTime keys, depending on the details of how the task was created/what type of task you are using.

You can use the Formatter tool to Pick From A List to mitigate this:
