Hi guys

 

I saw in Zapier 2 options to select from my contact property.

 

1. id

2. hs_object_id

 

Since both is the same number who knows the difference of both data fields for a contact?

Hey @Bmacuser,

 

I checked this with the internal team and we would suggest using the ID field.

 

This is because, hs_* field is something internal for Hubspot and there might be a possibility that it changed without any notice. Hence, using the ID field guarantee expected behavior.
