When you are dealing with one or more lists / arrays of data, the List Helpers connector provides a range of operations to help you manage and manipulate your listed data as required.
You can combine data from multiple sources, sort it, extract certain values, find common items, create batches for processing...the "list" goes on!
See our operation summaries below for more ideas and information on your potential list and data manipulation options.
List Helper TemplatesCopy
Below are some relevant templates you may wish to use or learn from. The full range can be found in our Templates Library.
Templates demonstrate pre-configured best practices / common use cases as well as examples of how to use this connector and how best to integrate it with others.
Your returned itemsCopy
Note that the List Helper will always return its results in the form of an array INSIDE of an object.
You will need to form a level of extraction to the results in order play with the array results themselves.
Note you can select a number of type formats whenever you are adding an item to a list.
This is not applicable to every property / operation but is very common and great for multiple use cases.
