WordPress - missing fields for custom post type

I’ve got a custom post type in WordPress called Coupons. I’m using a “New Spreadsheet Row in Google Sheets” > “Create Post in WordPress” zap to populate new coupons from a spreadsheet onto my site.  I'm trying to populate the title of new coupons from under the “Set up action” portion of the zap, but I don’t see any additional fields that I can populate with data from the spreadsheet:

When I switch from my custom post type to a generic post, I see all of these fields:

My coupon custom post types all have a title field. Is there anyway to populate the title field of a custom post type here, or do I need to include additional actions in my zap? Thanks!

Welcome to the Community @Epic Creative! :)

I’ve taken a look and it seems that custom post types aren’t fully supported yet which is why those fields aren’t loading as expected.

We’ve got an existing feature request open for this so I’ve gone ahead and added your vote for it. I can’t promise when it will be sorted by but we’ll be sure to email you once it is!

Just popping back in here to announce that the feature request has been implemented! 😁🎉

Please note: in order to use custom post types in a Zap, the Zapier for WordPress plugin needs to be updated to v1.1.0 or later.

Hope you’re able to give this a try soon. If you’re still having issues working with WordPress custom post types in your Zaps after upgrading the plugin do let us know. In the meantime, happy Zapping! ⚡
