Zapier: It's taking widget's metadata instead of widget's value.

    Zapier put {"widget_metadata":{"type":"imagelinks","value":[{"name":"image.jpg","url":"/widget-uploads/imagePreview/62444662312350/b9b2635image.jpg"}]}} 

    into google sheet where that should be a amazon picture link..

    So that's also not an option!

    I have been testing on my end with some widgets and seems like the issue is related to the widgets, widgets work on a different way than basic fields, seems like currently they are sending their metadata to Zapier instead of their values.

    I will forward this to our second level so our developers can further investigate it, we will let you know as soon as we get any update about it.

    Hi Marco,

    We have just released a fix for this bug. Image Preview widgets should return a proper value from here on out.

    Please be advised, however, that this fix is not retroactive and thus will not affect the old entries in your Google Sheets.

    Kind regards,
