Integromat Lookup returns Record ID instead of Name

When using Integromat to search/get records in Tadabase retrieving data from a Lookup Field returns the record ID instead of the name. For instance, Search “Name Lookup” returns l3xqwvHXq instead of “John Doe”. Is there any way to retrieve the value of the field instead of the record id on a Lookup?


Hey @frinksterj

By “lookup field” are you referring to a connection field? If so, connections are always made via a Record ID.

In order to get record data from a connected record, you must get that record from the connected table.

Hi Tim, to work around this issue I created a Formula Text Field in Tadabase that pulled the name of the contact. Now that I have done that I can use the Text Formula in Integromat instead of the Connected Field.
