Hi everyone!

I'm having an issue trying to connect a simple blog RSS feed to Webflow and couldn't find a topic here covering this problem.

When I'm the final step of the connections between the RSS fields and the CMS collection fields there's an Item (required) that I don't know what to connect to. It's not a field on my CMS Webflow collection nor an item from the RSS.

Hey @rodrigoleles happy to help with that! That field is just asking what you'd like to name this item. If you click on the "+" next to the field, you will be able to choose data from a previous step to include here. Does that get things working for you? Let us know!

Hey @jesse thanks for the reply!

What is happening is that even when I choose one of the available items from the RSS I still see the error. Here's a video showing the problem with details:

Hi @rodrigoleles ,

Circling back here to see if you are still experiencing an issue with the RSS or if your Zap is good to go! Just let us know and we can post the resolution or dig deeper here!

Hi @Liz_Roberts thanks for the reply. Unfortunately I could not find a way to use the zap as described in this thread so I had to find another solution.
