Using airtable webhook and pulling empty data

Hey everyone -

I am trying to figure out what to do in a memberstack, airtable,make,webflow path I have going with a membership database.

Everything works great until a user deletes data from their profile and doesn’t replace it. Let’s say a user has their phone number on their profile. They open their dashboard which is connected to Memberstack. They delete their phone number. It is deleted out of Memberstack which updates airtable.

Airtable last modified is triggered which kicks off the webhook in has a webhook that is triggered and sends the updated data to webflow collections.

The issue is, because there is now no data in that field, the make/airtable trigger doesn’t pull any data, so the webflow collection doesn’t do anything. It just keeps the data in place.

Any thoughts on how I can set it up so that if user data in an airtable cell is deleted that it is also deleted on webflow?

Thanks in advance!

Hi. I think you must not delete the record in the first time in Airtable. Its better you create an status as “deleted” then use this to trigger the action in webflow. After the remove it from webflow you finally delete the record from Airtable.

Thanks, Helio!
If you have questions reach out :wink:

Hi @Wemakefuture - Thanks for the reply! I’m not deleting a record, but users are deleting a cell in that record. So the record will have all details, name, company, number, etc. BUT they may want to delete their number and not add a new one. Either airtable or make doesn’t register that.

Image of my scenario.

The code I run to use the webook.

Same problem here. Trying to delete an image in Webflow, based on a deleted field in Airtable.

Anyone who could help?
