Google contact trigger

Basically I have some other software in this case it’s a business card scanner that creates Google Contacts

I want to make a workflow that gets the new contacts created and tweaks some values and I’m facing two issues:

  1. Updating a contact deletes every other field
  2. there’s no reliable way of searching new contacts

I tried adding a scan date
image

and custom field
image

These cannot be queried.

Even label names cannot be queried.

Is there any solution to this as I cannot get the webhook out of it.

It looks like your topic is missing some important information. Could you provide the following if applicable.

  • n8n version:
  • Database (default: SQLite):
  • n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main):
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app):
  • Operating system:

hello @bally

What is the issue?

As I see, there is options to filter contacts (Or you can retrieve all contacts and filter out unneeded with the Filter node

As I mentioned there is no way to search for specific contacts unless you know the name , and I don’t want to process thousands of contacts every minute one by one to search for fields to show that it is scanned in recently.

The query field does not seem to respond to anything else I can set as a marker on the contact
