Once you've completed the above steps, head over to the next page to set up your design and perform the API call.

Using the API Call

Create your design

In the above example, all groups are nested inside of one group that has the type of content set to Get Preview (Link Preview). This way we can perform the API call once, send the results to this group, and all three visual elements can display the resulting information:

Set up the API call

When setting up the call, we'll want to select the Link Preview - Get Preview action from our list of external API calls:
Select "Get data from an external API" first
Select "Get data from an external API" first
Then select "Link Preview - Get Preview" from the list
Then select "Link Preview - Get Preview" from the list
After you've made the correct selection, place the URL value into the (path) q input.

This is only one of many methods, so this decision is entirely up to you. Get creative!
