Cannot find desired pin subprofile when connecting Zapier and Buffer.

I’m trying to connect Zapier and Buffer to Automate my Pin scheduling.

For some reason,  under ‘Pin Subprofile’ I can’t find the board I want to pin to!

I tried starting the Zap again from scratch, but it can’t find the board I want.
I also tried to ‘refresh fields’ but it doesn’t help.

How would you try to solve this?

Hi @pazitive 

Good question.

To help us have context, please post screenshots with how your Zap steps are configured.

Hi Troy, thank you for your response!

It seems like it’s a Buffer issue - so I contacted them about it and they are trying to fix it…

So the way around is that

  1. Create a PinBoard/Subprofile in Buffer 
  2. Then connect it within Buffer Integration in Zappier

Did it myself and it is working.
