I have a form, via WPForms, that works for the most part. All data from form comes into Zapier correctly. It’s supposed to push data to a Zendesk ticket. Which it does for all data except “Dropdown”, “Multiple Choices”, or “Checkboxes”. I just cant get it to post the data for these fields with choices. I try and select Advanced Options, and select the data, but it doesn’t save. Have others run into this issue?

@maclean! Sorry for the delay in replying here and thanks for your question.
Are the Dropdown/Multiple Choice/Checkbox fields in the Zendesk? In other words, if you were creating the ticket in Zendesk would you see the field as a dropdown, etc?
Could you please send a screenshot of the fields in the Zendesk step in Zapier? And what does the information look like when it comes from WordPress forms?
Hi Danvers. Sorry for my delay. This went into junk mail. I just saw it today.
Thank you for replying.
Yes, this is a dropdown in Zendesk. Screenshots attached.
@maclean Sorry for the delay in getting back to you here!
You’ll need to use the ‘Custom’ option for any dropdown fields like that. When you use a custom value, you need to use the ID of the option that you want to add. So if the product was ‘Brainhq IPad App’, then the value that you would need to put in the Product section is ‘brainhq_ipad_app’:

To transform the option from the WordPress forms into the ID for the custom value, you can create a lookup table using the Formatter by Zapier app:
You’ll need to do that for any dropdown fields that you have. I hope that helps, please let me know if you have any questions!
