Daylite - Update Person

  • 2 December 2022

Looking to create a Zap with the action being an ‘Update to a Person’ in Daylite software. All I need to do is append a keyword, but in order to find the person, Zapier is asking for a ‘Reference’: “The reference of the person to be modified, of the form '/v1/contacts/1000' where 1000 is the contact id.”. I’m not sure what the contact id is, and I can’t seem to write this in a way that works for the Zap. Anyone know how to work with this reference piece? Thanks in advance!

Howdy @theheddlegroup, I believe Troy is correct here -- you need to fetch an ID from Daylite to update a Person if you are not using a Daylite Person trigger to start the Zap.  The Find Person => Update Person actions let you find the Person’s Daylite ID and then map the output from that step attached to the `self` key into the “Reference” field of the Update Person step! 

Let us know if you run into any snags along the way =)

Hi @theheddlegroup 

Try these Zap steps:

  • Daylite Find Person
    • This should return the Person ID needed for the next step
  • Daylite Update Person
    • Map the Person ID from the previous step
