FAQ

While posting to Zoho CRM app in Sheet Director I'm getting the following error. How to resolve it?

Error: "code":"INVALID_MODULE","details":{},"message":"the module name given seems to be invalid","status":"error"} Code: 400

It gives the above error because the module is not having permission to get/post in your environment. You can click here for more information on how to set up permission for the module explicitly.
