Common issues with Formatter

❗️ I am unable to find / select Formatter while selecting the trigger.

Since Formatter only converts data coming from another app in your Bot, it doesn't support any triggers yet.

❗️ I cannot find where OR how to add Formatter app in my account.

You need not add Formatter app to your account. It is available automatically in every account, and is visible directly while creating a Bot. Please refer to Where do I find OR How do I use Formatter in my Bot section above.
