Tena Koutou!

I got momentarily excited by the received webhook trigger in automations (old news I know, just got round to it seeming like a time saver!) only to learn that there is limited access to nested data within the json payload…

I’m sending a payload via webhook from Typeform => Airtable. Works great. I just can’t access the nested data I need. super frustrating. Seems like a fairly standard issue feature to be able to access nested data within a JSON object.

Has there been any update to this? Anyone have any work arounds that dont involve third parties? I’m happy proxying the webhook through vercel serveless function but just seemed like a quick win to manage it in airtable.

Any advice hugely appreciated!

More than a year later, no solution for this? I'm brand new to AirTable, less than 1 month, and I'm finding the automations SERIOUSLY lacking basic functionality. In trying to script webhook responses, I cannot believe that AirTable doesn't support arrays/objects.
