Custom Variables

💡

Custom Variables allow you to create your own variables and populate them API connectors like Zapier

Create a Custom Variable

To get started, you will need to create a custom variable. This is done via the New Variable button. There are currently three formats: Text, Number, Date. Setting these to the correct value is important to make ensure the incoming data is validated as one of these types. If you are unsure which type to select, use Text.

Updating Custom Variable Values

The easiest way to update the value of the variable is to use an API connector like Zapier. This allows for a no-code approach to bringing your custom data into FinDaily.

Custom API

If you need a more bespoke integration, you can update custom variables via our API.

Authentication

Every API call requires authentication via the Authorization header, with a Bearer token including the API Key from your integrations page.

e.g. Authorization: "Bearer [your api key]"
