I have heard many good things about Parabola recently and just signed up yesterday due to the considerable use of Webflow API in recent client projects.
I have been using Zapier and after I hit a wall there I was in search of alternatives. Need to know if Parabola gets past this problem.
Let me explain my use-case
We have a event site. There are 3 main CMS collections
- Event Topic
Each member can update their preferred event categories to be shown in the Member cms page.
So a multi-reference field from Event Category collection is mapped to member collection.
How this is currently done?
At present we use form submission trigger in Zapier and then manipulated using Zapier formatter, custom code, these array of values are sent back in the format Webflow need using Zapier Webhooks via PATCH request.
We want the member to have a chance to update their event category whenever they wish. PUT requests do this well by replacing old preference to a new one. Rather PATCH does it by making only required fields to change.
What I’m looking for?
I’m not sure if there is a way to be done using PUT request, or maybe I’m missing something or is it a limitation with Webflow or Zapier.
Whatever, I’m looking for a way to get the PUT request working with Parabola.
I have been scratching my head figuring this out for the past few days. Let me know if you have any good news to offer with regard to this.
