Getting Custom Field Data From A Specific Trello Card


Fairly new to Make, but I’ve been getting the hang of things over the past week and feel like I have a good grip on the platform so far.

What I’m currently trying to do is set up a 2-way sync between items and Trello Cards. I have already set up the 1-way connection from Monday that creates a new Card in the correct Trello board with custom field data already plugged in. One of the custom fields I set in Trello is a text custom field that displays the itemID from the Monday item I want to keep it sync’d with.


My issue arises when I try to set up my Make scenarios to send updates back to that respective item. I am able to use the Get A Card trigger to select the card I want to grab and sync back to Monday, but when trying to extract that custom field data to map back to the Monday itemID, I can’t get my scenario to return just that raw text.

The Get Custom Field options module returns data for dropdown lists, but the “Value” of that Card’s customFieldId always comes back empty.

When I try to specify which custom field I need the data for with the “Get A Custom Field” module, it only returns the data for the field at the Board level, not that specific card’s values.

I have tried everything under the sun to try and return that data to no avail, and unfortunately I can’t seem to find anything else online or in the documentation that explains the issue for me.

If anyone can help me crack this, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

So a bit of an update here. I actually discovered that this value is being output, I was just looking at the wrong field. Turns out the text field is “1” not “5”.

Now a new issue is arising where I can’t seem to get that to output as raw text. When trying to map that value as an itemID for Monday, it returns as a collection and not raw text.

Could some help me figure out what I need to do to convert that value collection into a raw string of text for the Monday module to read?

Hi Christofer,

If it is possible, could you also display the data in the array “Column values to change”.
I think that the problem is here…



Just wanted to update this thread that I figured out the solution by simply using a Parse to JSON operator to convert the value to raw, mappable text!
