How to filter location restriction from Facebook post with Zapier Filter

Hi!

Does anyone have an idea how I can filter location restrictions from my Facebook Posts?

 

I’m managing a multilingual Facebook page – with English and German content. Everytime I publish a post I set a location restriction before > German posts get the location restrictions: Austria, Germany and Switzerland. While English posts get the location restrictions: UK, US and Canada.

Now I want to automatically share those posts with Zapier on other Facebook pages I own – those other pages are not multilingual.

I’ve build a zap that works wonderful. The only tricky part is, how can I tell Zapier to only filter the German posts (= means posts that have the location restriction: Austria, Germany and Switzerland)

The filter tool from Zapier does not pull this info.

Any help would be highly appreciated! :)

Thanks in advance,

Jessica
