Zapier + Pipedrive (Search + Update workflow)

Hello!

Is there anybody who managed to successfully run this flow. 

1. There is a person in Pipedrive that I want to update the info about
2. They perform a trigger, that means they have more information my Sales team would be interested in
3. After this trigger I run Search step (Find Person) which is successfull
4. Then I add an Update step (Update person) to put down new information to the empty Person's fields
- I chose Pipedrive email (from step 2) in the "Person" field. I wanted this Person to add new data to.

There comes the issue. Test resulted into the following error (see screenshot)
 

Would be glad if anyone knows the solution or any hint

    Hi Pavel, 

    I would suggest grabbing the person ID from your search step and passing that to the update step instead of the email. I find that in general, using IDs for deals and people is more reliable than other methods. 

    Hope that helps.
