How to set up Zapier to do a custom webhook POST request to access Monkeylearn API for NLP functions

Monkeylearn.com is an awesome tool to help noncoders perform machine learning algorithms (for Natural Language Processing, etc...). The challenge is that the regular Monkeylearn integration in Zapier does not give you all the API data that you may want. For example, the Extract tool only gives the extracted keywords, but not the relevance, nor the position in text.

So, if instead of using the Monkeylearn zap in Zapier you build your own custom POST request, then you can get all the regular API output in JSON format. Make sure to choose "Custom Request" in the Webhooks by Zapier zap, NOT "POST". Once you are in the "Custom Request" zap, then choose POST as your method.

If you want to be able to upload a file to Dropbox from Zoho Creator, you have to create a custom function like below (here I called the function "Dropbox", under namespace "Create"). In the function, the ID is being passed to it from the underlying form entry. void Create.Dropbox(int id) { url = "https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/files/save_url"; headers = {"Authorization":"Bearer XXXXX","Content-Type":"application/json"}; data = {"path":"/FFFF/TTTT.XXX","url":"YYYY"}; datastring = data.toString(); response = postUrl(url,datastring,headers,false); } ... where XXXXX is your secret Dropbox Token, and YYYY is the url of the file you are uploading, and FFFF is the Dr
