I am following the Copper Playbook for Zapier and Google Docs. I followed step by step, except the one that is missing in Zapier. It does not come up so I am unable to continue according to the instructions. 


Could you please shed any light on this? Is the documentation obsolete? 


Thanks in advance

It probably means you haven't created the variable fields within Google Docs then. Variables won't show up in Zapier until the selected document has the variables added to it in Google Docs.

The example seems to have a few variables created.

Not sure though, not familiar with that guide, just an automation person chiming in 🤷‍♂️

Hi @Miriam, it’s hard to say based on your post what might be the issue. But as @alex suggested, is it possible that you don’t already have variables/merge fields created in your Google Slide doc?

You know what, I might be able to connect you with the person who created the playbook. These sorts of things are easier to work through in a meeting/screen share than through the forum, and I want to make sure you get the best guidance and answers. Look out for an email from the Copper Success Team - that’ll be me.
