Addressing JavaScript and Zapier Issues for Better Client Request Handling

This was a technical meeting between two State Changers focusing on using JavaScript within Zapier. The main issue discussed was splitting fields in the scripting environment, specifically breaking a full name into first and last name components. The conversation clarified the usage of input data in the Zapier's code block, demonstrating that the labels from the left (e.g., "full name", "customer info", "item") are what is passed into the JavaScript code, not the data sourced from the right.

Furthermore, they fixed an issue with the use of the split method in JavaScript. Initially, the code was wrongly splitting on the word "full name" instead of a space. They corrected this to split the data correctly on the space, thereby dividing the full name into first and last names. They also briefly discussed the use of "\n" in JavaScript, clarifying it's a new line character. The meeting concluded with a brief discussion about the timing of future office hours to cater for the global team, highlighting their broad geographical spread from Asia, Europe, Australia to the United States.
