I am pulling in data from a webhook to create entries.  I need to prevent entries from being created if they already exist.

Is there a way to use the Find Records and Conditions to prevent this from happening?

If so perhaps there is a guide somewhere?  This is a very confusing part of Airtable imo.

Yeap, just use a "Find Records" action to see if a record already exists with that data, then have a conditional that'll create a new record if it can't find anything.  It'll look something like this:

And this is how the conditional's set up:
