SQS - Zapier - Monday: Error message from zapier: " invalid value, please check our API documentation..."

Hi, i am getting some errors from Zapier.

Error Message:

32 invalid value, please check our API documentation for the correct data structure for this column.

So i am trying to Zap some information from a SQS form and into Monday. I understood that i had to use JSON in the field in order for zapier to get the right format. 

When i test it before i run the Zap, everything works fine and a new item is created successfully in Monday. But when i try everything from my website i get an email from Zapier telling me that an error has occurred. The error is the “Error Message” above.
When i remove the email field, everything works fine again. So this is where the issue has to be. 

The email field and the code:


{"email" : "{{120460624__1e7ea3ff17b10fdf01d3affc9490d5a22784af20}}", "text": "{{120460624__1e7ea3ff17b10fdf01d3affc9490d5a22784af20}}"}

Website where the form is;

Thank you!

Hi @carlthan 

Try just passing the dynamic email parameter w/o the JSON format.

If you are also passing other data points, the error may stem from the formatting from another data point.

Hi @Troy Tessalone

Without the JSON format it won´t let me proceed from the testing. The following error ouccurs then;

But with the JSON the “Test” in Zapier works fine, but the real and online version then sends me an email with the seemingly same error.

What Monday action are you trying to perform?

Perhaps include screenshots of the entire Zap step configuration.

Try just this: {"email" : "[EMAIL]"}

Have you tried escaping the quotes as shown in the docs?

"{\"email\":\"\",\"text\":\"my email\"}"
