It would be great if we could use the api-key values for our native pipedrive automation.
I strongly belive it would open up countless opportunities to automate even more boring tasks in pipedrive.
e.g "i want to create a new contact where i dont have the first name (api first_name) but i have the last name (api lastname). Working with german speaking customers i created a custom field "Anrede" (Salutation) for Mr. or Mrs. so i can use that fields in Email Templates.
In that situation a workaround to ad Mr. Doe (where pipedrive would add Mr. as the firstname and Doe as the wanted last_name) wouldnt be acceptable as it s 1. unorganisied to have two fields with the same value and 2. uneffective to fill the same infomation in two fields.
The solution here would be to create an automation like : if lastname is empty , copie first_name value in last_name then delete first_name value.
... or just let us customise which fields appear in the "new contact" box.
The support suggested to use Zapier for that solution but i dont want to go through the hassle of implementing Zapier for everyone in the team AND it just doesnt makes sense to me that a external tool can use the values while native pipedrive cant do it.
If i overlooked a simple solution to my problem i'd be more then thankfull to here it from you guys but i think my suggestion to use the api-key values in our pipedrive automation holds value for everyone nonetheless and i'd be thrilled to see in pipedrive.
