Enrich Webflow CMS data with another API and then send it back

Use the functionality of any API to transform the data in your Webflow CMS. Great for enriching blog posts, converting currency, finding random images, and so much more.

The recipe uses the API steps to connect to Webflow, but we now have a Webflow Import and Webflow Export! Be sure to use those steps to make this recipe even easier!
Enrich Webflow CMS data with another API and then send it back

This flow specifically demonstrates how to convert currency data that is held in your Webflow CMS. This flow could run as frequently as you want to keep your numbers up to date. Could be used to localize currency in an ecommerce site, or display cryptocurrency prices.

This flow pulls in data from the collection in Webflow, and at the same time pulls in the current exchange rate between the USD and GBP. The data is then joined, and the conversion calculation is performed. Followed by a little formatting, and the data is ready to go back to Webflow.

Improvements

If you needed to apply different exchange rates to each row, you could use an Enrich with an API step to pass each row to the conversion API, and make sure that each row is asking for its specific exchange rate. After that, the math part and on would be the same!
