Airtable column names not updating in Make scenario mapping

Hello! I’ve built out a fairly extensive scenario with Watch Records (Airtable) as the Trigger, into various Quickbooks api calls, then upserting into various Airtable bases.

MY ISSUE: I cannot get my Airtable Column Names in the Make Mappings to update with the field name changes I’ve made within my Airtable base(s).

Recent updates from Make state:
“Create, Update, and Upsert modules: * When a column’s name changes, it has no negative effect on a scenario. Now, the column’s IDs are used.”

HOWEVER, if I attempt to edit any of my Mappings in Make, and the column names have not updated to match my current Airtable field names, I get errors all over the place.

Appreciate any guidance!!

I’m frequently updating my Airtable columns, which has had no impact on Make thanks to the use of column IDs.

If this was added in a recent update, perhaps setting up the existing modules once anew solves the issue?

It seems, Make only shows the new column names after a trigger run, but keeps functioning even with the old ones.

Can you give some screenshots of examples please?

Hi Scotty,

Is the question for @JohnGadd or me?

I keep changing Airtable fields without effect on Make, the field IDs used by the API are static.

When adding new fields, I trigger the scenario with value in the new field, which adds it to Make.
