Is there a way in IFTTT to retrieve a particular field of a newly created row?

I’ve got a contact list airtable, and want to update a Mailchimp list whenever I put a new record into Airtable. I had a look at building this in IFTTT, but couldn’t see a way to get the value in (for example) the ‘Name’ field in Airtable so that I could put it in the ‘Name’ field in Mailchimp. There’s an ingredient called RecordJson, which I assume has all the data from the new record, but I can’t find any documentation about how to pull a particular element from the JSON.

Is this possible with IFTTT, or only in Zapier?

(I know there’s a recipe which claims to do this, but I can’t see how it’s able to connect the relevant fields.)

In my personal opinion, the #1 best tool for doing this is Make.

It's very easy to accomplish this using Make's Mailchimp integrations and Make's Airtable integrations.

If you're brand new to Make, there is a bit of a learning curve, which is why I created this basic navigation video to help. I also provide the links to a few other Make training resources there as well. For example, to instantly trigger your Make scenarios from Airtable, check out this thread.

p.s. If you have a budget for your project and you’d like to hire an expert Airtable consultant to help you with any of this, please feel free to contact me through my website: Airtable consulting — ScottWorld
