Email Parser Text to Salesforce Picklist

I have a functioning email parser where it pulls in a field that I need to map to a picklist value in Salesforce.

 

For Example, the email parser will pull in a field “Apple” which I need to map to a Salesforce Picklist value of “Fruit”

 

I tried to build a lookup table through the formatter utility, but it isn’t mapping to the picklist field when the record is created or updated in Salesforce.

 

Any ideas?

Check this article: https://zapier.com/help/doc/tips-and-tricks-salesforce-triggers-and-actions#i-want-to-select-more-than-one-value-from-the-dropdown-field

@Troy Tessalone thank you so much for the quick reply!

My issue is I can’t get to the picklist value at all.  Here is a screenshot of what I am trying to do, which may be the complete wrong way of going about it.

“Salesforce Picklist Values” I am inserting later in the Zap which should match to a picklist in Salesforce

Can you provide a screenshot of the Salesforce step picklist field options you are trying to map the data point to?

@Troy Tessalone I actually got it to work!  I had the formatter utility lookup after the “find create record in salesforce” step which was to update the field value.  I recreated a zap with this in front and voila, it texted correctly.

 

Now on to create the same workflow to convert text into a two-letter country code for Salesforce.  Are you aware if there is a template for this in Zapier?  Or do I need to create another Lookup Table with every single country code in it :grimacing:

 

Thank you for the help!

No such template exists.

As an alternative you could use a GSheet and a GSheet Lookup Row action, which may be easier to create and maintain than a Formatter Lookup Table.

 

Thanks @Troy Tessalone , I also think it could be done via a javascript lookup with the “code” function.

 

I am getting a syntax error though, so need to troubleshoot further after dinner.
