Export leads from an Excel file to Pipedrive
This is a 'Workflow' template which means that it is a single standalone workflow.
Some workflow templates can be modified to work with other workflow templates - e.g. to convert a data sync between two services from uni-directional to bi-directional
The purpose of this workflow is to capture leads from an Excel sheet and use these to create and update persons in Pipedrive.
This workflow is fired every time an Excel sheet is uploaded onto a Tray Form:

This Object Helpers step transforms the Excel column headers into a standard object with fields in the following format:
First Name --> first_name
Last Name --> last_name
Lead Source --> lead_source
For each lead we will then have a simple object which can be easily accessed by later Pipedrive steps using jsonpaths such as

Create / Update personsCopy
A search is made for an existing person in Pipedrive using the lead’s email address as the unique identifier.
If a Pipedrive person does exist, the person record is updated.
If a Pipedrive person does not exist, a new person record is created.
