Hey @Yashiro Horie!

Did the suggestions help out with your Zap here? You would need a Create Presentation Template action per each template you want to use - as mentioned, you wouldn’t be able to use a custom value from the Airtable trigger here 👍

That limitation means you’ll have to configure different Zaps per GSlides Template you’re trying to use.

I know that, however, I can not select Template using Custom Field. There is “Do not use custom Field” at here.

Check out this help article: https://zapier.com/help/create/basics/set-up-your-zap-action#set-up-your-action

It shows you how to use the ‘Custom’ mapping option to dynamically populate a field.

NOTE: Make sure to use a sample record from the trigger that has the desired data point populated.

 

Thank you, Could you explain me how to select exists template from field of airtable?
