Can't find the answer anywhere

I use Zapier to send a deal and contact info into Pipedrive

I have two functions; 

  1. CREATE PERSON IN PIPEDRIVE
  2. CREATE DEAL IN PIPEDRIVE

However these don't merge the person to the deal - how do you achieve this please? Thanks

    Pass the person ID from the first step into the Person ID in the second step.

    I simply can't find how to do it, is there a guide anywhere?

    Jonathan, when you are in the zap, in the create deal step, find the field for the person ID, and type "Person ID". It should then populate the person ID from the 2nd step.

    So it'll say something like "2: Person ID: 12345"

    Duplicate deals. IE, same person made 2 enquiries.

    How do you define two persons being the same? Same email id, same name, same phone, any of these two, all 3?

    Hi, I am having the same problem. I have used the Zapier "find person" then create one if the email and phone number are not the same, however, it creates one anyway which is leaving me with loads of duplicates

    My advice would be to only detect duplicates using email, or format phone numbers to be in a consistent format if you plan to use them for duplicate detection.

    Make/Integromat offers a robust method to format phone numbers.
