Hi all,

Basically my question is the title -- is there a way with Zapier to add new arrays to an existing json file (which is on Dropbox)?

What I’m trying to accomplish is our own custom “link in bio” page where we link every Instagram post to an existing article on our site. In Zapier we build the array with “New post on Instagram” and some custom data. We need to add (preferably prepend) this array to our existing json feed (instafeed.json). 

I can’t seem to find a way to output/append/prepend to json, only mangle incoming json.

Hi @jphorn 

I’d suggest that you use a code step, Python or JS, to add additional contents to a json file.
