Hi @Gabi 

Catch Hook Raw is unparsed data from the trigger app VS Catch Hook is parsed data from the trigger app

You’ll likely want to use Catch Hook for ease of accessing data points to map to the action steps.

 

Catch Hook Raw: Wait for a new POST, PUT, or GET to a Zapier URL.
Gives the request body unparsed (max 2 MB) and also includes headers.

 

TIP: When in doubt, test it out.

 

Check out the available Webhooks docs: https://zapier.com/apps/webhook/help
