In this article, we will introduce 4 different types of field mappings:
This would mean that a fixed value is being placed into the field without retrieving the value belonging to the field of each record.
This would mean that the email retrieved would be the same regardless of the record retrieved.
This would be the cause for error when users realize that their results are the same despite running the recipe on different records.
An example of static mapping can be seen in the "Email" field below.
Dynamic field mapping occurs when data pills are chosen as inputs.
This means that the value passed into the field would vary accordingly to the object/record retrieved.
The "First Name" data pill that was passed into the "Display name" field is an example of a dynamic field mapping.
Combination field mapping type occurs when static and dynamic field types are being used concurrently. A common example would be to add a fixed value to a dynamic field type, such as adding a number to a dynamic numeric value.
The example below shows how a static string is added to a dynamic string value called "Invoice Number".
4. Formula (Click for more information on how you might use the formula mode)
Formula field mapping type occurs when a formula is used to create a input into the field.
This could be used to manipulate the value from a data pill. It could be used in a variety of ways, such as when users wish to split a string or apply an operator on a numerical values.
