We would need to see how your ‘Action’ section is configured.

It’s likely the mapped variable of Caption is too long for the field Name.

You may need to add a Formatter > Text > Truncate step.

You would need to add the Formatter step before the Webflow step.

Please show more screenshots for these.

 

What are the results of this Formatter config?

 

Did you map the output from the Formatter step to the Name field in place of the previously mapped variable?

We would need to see screenshots with how your Zap step 2 is configured.
