How to have Facebook Lead Ads create new LEADS in Pipedrive via Zapier

Hi, I have Facebook Lead Ads running, and integration with Zapier is working and I can create DEALS in Pipedrive.

But, I can't find an option in the Zapier Zap to allow creation of Pipedrive Leads, only Deals, People, Activity etc. Basically anything but Leads!

Can anyone help with this? Thanks

    Hi @Tim O'Neill !

    I did some quick testing on my end and, although we've recently released API endpoint for Leads, it seems that unfortunately Zapier hasn't updated their action options to include them yet.

    I suggest you reach out to them to double-check what other options they can offer:

    We have a similar feature request, and also need the ability to add custom fields to "LEADS". Custom fields are supported for People, Organizations, Deals and Products. MUST be supported for LEADS, too.

    Quick update @Tim O'Neill : I double-checked with our team and can confirm that we've reached out to Zapier about them implementing these new API endpoints for Leads and they are working on it. It takes time, and ETA will depend on them unfortunately.

    If you reach out to them asking about it, it may add a little pep to their step. 😉

    Thank you for your feedback, @Rusty Ruetz !

    Regarding Zapier, please see my answer to @Tim O'Neill  above. 🙂

    Leads being still in beta version, we have a big list of improvements we want to add to them, and custom fields are on that list. There's lots of moving pieces that can sometimes speed up or delay delivery so we'd rather be on the safe side with making promises, I hope you understand. 

    Once it goes live, for sure we'll announce it here - we know it's quite a desired option and I've forwarded your feedback internally to our team.

    That being said, here are some pro tips to stay on top of things:

    • Follow this topic to know what we're working on currently.
    • Join our Research and Beta Testing channel to be the first to know what's coming up and the chance to try out early versions of new and improved features. 🚀
