Filter and Paths Now Support Dynamic Values

Hi everyone! 👋 Joanne here, Frontend Engineer on the Editor team. I wanted to share with you a small but exciting new feature our team has recently built.


Comparison value for Filter and Paths is now a mappable field!


One of the most popular requests we've been getting from customers is the ability to map a value from a previous step for Filter or Paths. We've now implemented this new feature, and it’s now live

Use Cases

There are a variety of use cases, but here are a couple:

  • Some triggers trigger on both new and updated records. If you want to only pass through new records to the next steps, you need to compare created_date and updated_date.
  • Some of our customers do multiple search actions (Find Contact + Find Opportunity) and then compare if a value, like Owner, is the same on both of them.




Please play around with this change on Zapier, and let us know if you have any questions or feedback!

Thanks! :slight_smile:


This is great news!

Unfortunately, only half the problem with filters was addressed. For some reason, the details of the first comparison value are still missing.



@RonW Let me share this idea with the team and get back to you shortly.

@RonW We are thinking of showing the step number app logo. Since that component is a dropdown (not-custom editable), we don’t have room to show sample data. What do you think about that?


That will be most helpful as we can at least identify where the comparison values are coming from.


@RonW Thanks to your suggestion, this is now live! Keep those suggestions coming!


It's a small change, but this will make it so much easier to trace the data that the filter is using.
