Why is my Zap action adding the same data each time it occurs?

Last updated:

If you find that your Zap is sending through the same data every time it runs, rather than new data from the trigger event, it could mean that you've written in values in your action fields. To prevent this and have your Zap dynamically update each time, you will need to set up your action to use dynamic data from the trigger.

On the left, we wrote in a single value to the email field in our Mailchimp action. This means that every time this Zap runs, this field will be set to the same email address. But on the right we used the email column from our Google Sheet, so every time a new row is added to our sheet, we'll send the email address from that row.
