How Do I Set Up an Iterator and Aggregator to Work Together?

If you’ve ever wondered, “How do I set up an Iterator and Aggregator to work together?”, you’re in the right place! Using Make.com, this can be a simple process even if you’re not very tech-savvy. Let’s walk through the steps together using a practical example: displaying multiple images from a Webflow CMS collection in a Facebook post.

Starting with the Iterator Module

The first step in our journey is to set up the Iterator module. This tool helps break down a large group of images into smaller bundles. Here’s how to do it:

  • After you’ve got your images in the Webflow CMS, place the Iterator module right after the Webflow CMS module in your workflow.
  • Next, feed the Gallery Array from the Webflow module into the Iterator. This step is crucial as it splits the array of images into individual bundles, making them easier to manage.

Connecting the Array Aggregator Module

Once your images are neatly bundled, it’s time to bring in the Array Aggregator module. This tool will take all those small bundles and combine them back into a single structured array. Here’s how to set it up:

  • Place the Array Aggregator module right after your Iterator module. This setup ensures a smooth flow of data.
  • In the Aggregator module, choose the structure that matches the Facebook module. This alignment is key to making sure the final output looks right on Facebook.
  • Map the file details from the Iterator to the Photos field in the Aggregator module by using the map button. This action combines all your individual images back into one array.

Finalizing with the Facebook Module

With your images now neatly arranged in one array, the last step is to connect to the Facebook module:

  • Link the Facebook module after the Array Aggregator module.
  • Map the output of the Aggregator module to the Photos field in the Facebook module. This step is what allows Facebook to recognize and display the array of images correctly in your post.

By following these steps on how to set up an Iterator and Aggregator to work together, you can effectively manage and display multiple images in a Facebook post through Make.com. This process not only simplifies handling large sets of data but also enhances the presentation of your content on social media platforms.
