How to update correct task in Todoist when Outlook event is updated?

I just setting up my first two Zaps and I came across an issue.  I setup a Zap to push new events from Outlook to Todoist.  This Zap works well.

However, when I created a second Zap to push Outlook event updates to Todoist, it seems there is no way to identify the correct Todoist task/event that should be updated.  If several task/events have the same name, there doesn’t appear to be a way to differentiate between them because the only way to search is by name.

Is this just a limitation that prevents Zapier from being the solution I need or am I missing something?

Hi @rjolicoeur 

In this case, you’ll need to use a database (Zapier has one; Storage by Zapier) to store the email address and corresponding todoist task ID. So that whenever the person replies in Outlook, zapier will look into the database and find the corresponding todoist ID and can update that.
