Hi Folks,

I made a video describing this problem - it’s easier to explain that way:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Q0hJBF4hm-7bcIdpVLQyTGaxK0Au53Ew/view?usp=drive_link

Short story: Zap creates an invoice in Invoice Ninja - everything looks good - then it’s supposed to plug the Invitations Link into a button in an email, but it combines it with another link, thereby breaking the button.

Please help!

Shawn

@ZapKellar 

You are dealing with an array, which is why you are getting multiple links concatenated together.
 

As you can see this is the second Item in the array.

 

Zapier pre-parses arrays into data points and returns array items as comma separated, which is what you see here.

 

 Add this Zap action step: Formatter > Utilities > Line Items to Text.

Set the Delimiter as: ^

That will return an individual data point: item_last

Map that to your email step for the link.
