Hello all - Appreciate the help here with something I am stuck on. 

I am trying to use tags when I am inserting new + updating current records in Monday. I have tried both with # and without. Neither seem to work. 

I am inserting it like this (this is not PPI information FYI)

And receive this error:

Any ideas on why I am getting this error?

Oh just to add two quick things:
1. This is when I am UPDATING the record. 
2. When I INSERT the record, it does not error but it does not add the tag

So two different issues

you may need to send the tag id as opposed to the tag name. If that is a dropdown option in Zapier, the grey values should match the values you need to send. If you do need to send the tag id, you may need a lookup table to translate the tag name to its respective id

Hey @alexadagostino@GetUWired is correct in that you will need to use tag IDs instead of names and that a lookup table can help you translate names into values. 

If you need help finding the column IDs, you may be able to use a “Get Column Values” action to pull a list of these. 

Give those a try and let us know if there is anything else we can lend a hand with as you’re configuring your Zap!
