Connect data to a table search card

When using the Tables – Search Rows card to search a table you can connect data from any card that comes before it.

Rearrange card output fields

If you prefer card output fields to be arranged in a particular order, click the gear icon and then use drag-and-drop to change the order.

Read JSON path with don-notation

When you need to read a particular item in a JSON object, use Object – Get and Object – Get Multiple cards to read the item using a dot-notation syntax. Object – Get reads a single JSON value, and Object – Get Multiple reads multiple values.
