How do I Post from the API connector plugin?

Hello all.
I’m using Xano as my back end. I’m working on getting my first instance of sending data back to Xano. I’ve connected a post API from Xano successfully in the API Connector and validated that it does indeed send data back to Xano and create or edit a row in a table.

Though, where I’m struggling to keep up is how I can engage this functionality in the design builder?
I’ve tried using states and conditionals to change data sources so that the post doesn’t engage until the user makes a specific action, but each route I’m trying to take ends up asking to display data instead of just using the Post API as the source.

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.

I suspect what you want to do is set the API call to be an “action” (not “data”) so that you can use the API call in your workflows. (I’m just guessing, you sound like you know what you are doing, but this might be something you missed) :slight_smile:

Thank you.
That was it. I tried that earlier, but couldn’t find where to access it so I changed it back to data.
Now I see it shows up under plugins in the work flow tab.
