Hello how can I use the new Zapier Integration on botpress? First of all I installed the zapier integration app on botpress and got a generated url to send data from zapier to botpress. Then I connect Zapier with Botpress (0.1.0) Integration on zapier and put this url to my Action on Zapier. After that according the documentation I should use on botpress the trigger "Event from Zapier" to get the data from zapier. Sending Data from Zapier to Botpress is successful but the trigger on botpress either does not work or I do in one step something wrong. I would be extremely grateful for support. Screenshots attached.

I see you added a message in the node following the zapier trigger in Botpress. Are you expecting the response from Botpress to include the text as the payload of the response? A zapier trigger can't output text. What do you mean by "botpress either does not work"? What do you expect should happen, and what is not happening?

Hi @Patrick 🐿 , Please see the Screenshots. What I expect should happen: Zapier gets Triggered by adding new google event --> Zapier sends event data to Botpress --> "From Zapier" Trigger gets triggered --> card "Standard5" will be executed. Card Standard5: 1. Executing Code function to get ZapierData from payload: workflow.zapierdata = JSON.parse(event.payload.body); 2. sending text message to user including zapierdata variable What is happening at the moment: Botpress trigger "From Zapier trigger" does not get triggered, therefore card standard5 never gets executed. I hope I was able to explain clearly. If not, I would be down to make a short call with you. Best regards, Kaan

I am facing the same issue, using normal Post request call from Zapier to Botpress Webhook. The trigger at Botpress end does not execute.

Hi @magnificent-agent-83079 , thanks for the additional info. You mention a user, but i'm not sure who the user is. Is this the flow you want? - User says something on Botpress widget - bot sends information to Zapier Wehbook - zapier does something - zapier calls Botpress trigger - User gets response from Botpress widget
