Hello,

I have one very simple Zap I use to post new Youtube video uploads to my Google My Business Updates section.

It’s been working perfectly for over a month, but on the last 3 new videos it has starting throwing an error when it tries to run.

The error is…

Step 2. Create Post in Google My Business
This Google My Business step hit an error.
Error Message: Couldn't create a post for this location: Request contains an invalid argument.

The AI troubleshooter says it’s a problem with the Data In, but none of the fields look broken to me.

post_summary: Are Your Online Listings Hurting Your Dental Practice?
topic_type: STANDARD
call_to_action_type: LEARN_MORE
call_to_action_url: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9rd35Cv2Lo

The only other field is the GMB location, which I’ve tested and it’s still connected and working.
 
Any thoughts?
