Hi,

Wasn't able to get Typeform to connect with StdLib following the steps above; I'm getting a 501 error in Typeform?

{
"error": {
"type": "ParameterError",
"message": "One or more parameters provided did not match the function signature",
"details": {
"event_type": {
"message": "required",
"required": true
},
"form_response": {
"message": "required",
"required": true
}
}
}
}

Not sure what the issue is.

Hi John,

It's actually now easier to create this workflow with our workflow Builder - build.stdlib.com.

As you select the API's you want to work with we will autogenerate the code for you (the code will be made available for you to edit as well).

Once you have prepped you Typeform and your Airtable base go to Build.Stdlib.com and set up the following workflow.

Hi Janeth

Can you please elaborate on what fields I need to enter to get this running?

I've connected all 3 API (Typeform, Clearbit, Airtable) to Stdlib via the Builder.

Not sure which dropdown to choose when I get to 'Run a Test Event'

  1. For Clearbit is the correct selection 'Retrieve a Person by email address'? Can you tell me the name of the event I need send it? (e.g. ${event.form_response.answers[0]} is not working)

  2. For Airtable, is the correct selection 'Insert a row into a base'? Likewise, can you tell me the name of the table and fields I need to send it? There's a ton from the dropdown menu.

Attached photo to show where I am stuck.

Thanks!

Hi John,

I can actually provide live help from Slack. Are you able to join our Slack community channel for Standard Library Developers? You can join via the invite link on our main page (stdlib.com) under the "Community" tab

Sure but I'm having trouble getting on Slack; there was an invite link but that disappeared and now getting a popup top right saying "Sorry there's something wrong talking to Slack API, Please try again later"

Would you mind emailing me (janeth@stdlib.com) with your Standard Library username and the email connected to your account? Thanks
