Use math in a Zap?

I can’t believe I can’t find an answer to this, but I swear I looked.


In my trigger file, I’m pulling in amount.


I want to add it to the existing amount in the action file. 


TotalAmt = TotalAmt + Amount


Can someone help?

Hi @ImpulseTakeoffs

Try using a Formatter > Numbers > Perform Math Operation step in the Zap.

Hey @ImpulseTakeoffs,

Troy is correct, the Formatter (Numbers > Perform Math Operation) action would allow you to add the two amounts together. You can find out more about this action and how to use it here: 

Alternatively, you could use a Formatter (Numbers > Spreadsheet-Style Formula) action to perform calculations in a Zap. You can find out more about that action here: Use spreadsheet-style formula functions in Zaps

Hope that helps! :)
