Mapping an item

Modules in a scenario are linked to one another by item mapping.

Example: Mapping an email to make a Tweet

The scenario below shows how to connect a selected mailbox to your Twitter account.
Whenever a new email arrives in a specified mailbox, Integromat will download it and create a new Tweet from its content.

To do this, start by adding the Email trigger Watch emails to your scenario. Then add the Twitter action Create a Tweet and map the Text content item from the email to the Status field.

How to map items

In the module setting, click the field that you want to insert a value or a variable (item) from a preceding module in. This will open a panel offering all items from preceding modules in the scenario that are available for mapping.

To map an item to a field, click on the item or drag it towards the field.


Functions are available for advanced mapping possibilities. For a detailed description see the Functions help guide.
