I built a zap from Formstack to Asana.  There’s a field I’d like to add to the Asana ‘name’ field.  Specifically, it’s the Formstack Submission ID, as it helps separate unique submissions.  Anyone have any success in this?


It seems I can only pull fields from within the form itself that are filled out, but cannot locate Submission ID.

Try using Webhooks:

Hi @Troy Tessalone - Novice-question here; is this replacing the Zap, or tweaking the Formstack-side?

Make a copy of your Zap.

Change the trigger to Webhook.

Take the provided URL.

Put in Formstack per the article.

Hi @steph.n - Yes, that part was answered.  Not sure if I’ll go with it.  W/out the webhook (normal Formstack connection), I can split the first and last name formstack field into Asana into the task name.  With the webhook, it adds the field name “first=” and “last=” to it.  Not sure if there’s a way to not have those show up or not, but that’s what I’m trying to tweak and play around with to get ‘only’ the names (not the fields) and utilize the webhook option.
