If your Trigger only sends a block of text—such as the body of an email or a note—but you want to access different parts of that text as separate variables later in your Zap, Zapier has a special syntax you can use called Named Variables. Named Variables are a way for you to send information separately so you can use it for multiple fields, or you can just use part of it for one field.
Say you’re receiving all of a customer’s contact information in one paragraph of text from your trigger. If you wanted to send the customer’s first name, last name, email address, and phone number separately in different fields of your subsequent action steps though, you could do that with Named Variables.
You must be able to format the data that’s coming over in your Trigger. If this data is automatically generated, you’ll need to use a Formatter step to split that data, instead.
