Confused About Which Tool To Use to Pull Data From An Array


I’m a newbie here, and I’m trying to map a module from an AI time-tracking app called Timely (which has a Make module) to an Airtable base I’ve created.

I’m trying to figure out how to extract data from an array that I think contains a text string or two that I want to be able to identify and singularly put into an Airtable field.

Do I use the iterator to do that? As in, should I go – Timely App > Iterator > Airtable module?

This is what I did, essentially, putting the array information in the Iterator module –

But I don’t know what to do after to get that data. Can anyone help me?

Hi. First do a iterate module, map the array using map function.

Thanks, Helio!

Thanks for the response! So are you saying do Timely > Iterator > Set Variable/Map Array > Airtable

or Timely > Set Variable/Map Array > Iterator > Airtable?

Thanks a lot!

You must map the exact array you want. If you need the iterate after Timely let it and map after this iterate.

I’m sorry, I still don’t know what you mean. I’m trying to map the array but I want to be able to pull information from inside the array and map that to where I’d like it to go.
