You also want to add a merge field from Investment Dominator Called Property ID which you will attach to the end of the title.

Click at the end of the title than under Insert Data use the search bar to lookup ID it will be the first number that we see here. Now our title is able to attach to the property we are working with.

NOTE: If you are using the free version of Zapier you will not be able to activate your Zap after this point.

Click the ‘Test & Continue‘ button

To verify the test we just did was completed correctly you will notice within your Googe Tasks Account this will now generate our new task list.

Now that we have created our Task List we will want to add our task items.

To do this we will need to follow along with our Due Diligence Checklist Document which can be found under the documents tab within Land Profit Generator Account.

With the document now downloaded we will be setting up our next Zaps under the action of Create Task.

Under the Setup Action, you need to select the Task List we just created to this click onto the field for Task List then click Custom.

Once Custom has been Selected then Choose the ID option as shown below.

Then you will need to add the remaining Final touches which include:

Title of the Task if we follow the document the first item is Market Value.

And as for Notes copy and paste the information under the title for Market Value.

Next press continue.

Verify before you continue to see if this has the output expected which you can do back on Google Tasks.

You will need to do this for the remaining 11 steps in the Due Diligence Checklist and if you need help you can also see the exact zap created to do this here: https://zapier.com/shared/797edbc5ce42ef115f08cacaab497f2f4d997362

Once completed and Verified within your system you will get a final confirmation message that your Zap works!

Hooray! Now, whenever a record is updated within your Land Records to the Open Escrow Detailed Research status; this will trigger a new Task List on Google Tasks along with the additional Tasks Items for the Due Diligence Check List to populate from Zapier!
