Hi all… iam new in Zapier integration platform.
let me tell you what iam done before.
I’ve API to get local business information like phone, website, address, etc worldwide.
then i want to implement our api to Zapier platform
My integration already on public beta, and i just have 1 trigger (for select option only) and 1 create action for searching data.
The flow I want to build is simple.
1) user search data then save data into spreadsheet
But, the problem is, my API is using cursor for pagination, and iam still confuse regarding how to perform create action (searching data) continuously with next cursor.
Help me please.
- what the best method for trigger app if the flow like above
- give me example about how to perform create action (searching data) with next cursor from response and continuously

I hope this helps to provide some high-level context, and I’ll be in touch with you shortly to discuss the specifics of your app via the Support ticket :)
