My Hubspot form contains several multiple choice questions where more than one answer can be selected (e.g. “What fruit do you like to eat? Select all that apply.”)
If multiple answers are indeed selected, these then get transferred to Zapier as a comma-separated list (e.g. “bananas, apples, oranges”). I’d like to split these line item answers back into the individual answer categories (e.g. “bananas”, “apples”, and “oranges”) so that I can use them individually later to auto-fill a Google Sheet. This Google Sheet has each of those answer categories as individual columns (e.g. “bananas” = A, “apples” = B).
I’ve tried multiple Formatter actions and can’t get them to do exactly this. Is it possible on Zapier?

You may need to explore the use of a Code (https://zapier.com/apps/code/help) step to parse and assign the answer options to designated variables that are then mapped to specific columns in the Zap.
For example, if answer set contains “apples” then assign to variable ‘A’, which is then mapped to a specific column in the GSheet.
