Download CSV data vs IFTTT

Hello,

New Automatic Pro User here.  I've made some trips and compared the data available through the IFTTT recipe and the downloadable CSV info.  The CSV info includes the approximate address for where trips start and stop "start location name" column.  However the IFTTT recipe seems to only have ingredients for the lat/long or a URL link.  I would love to have the "start location name" instead, even if it is approximate.

Is there an ingredient I can use in IFTTT to capture that approximate address?  Clearly Automatic has the info since it is in the CSV file.  I attempted to add StartLocationName as an ingredient, but it wasn't accepted.  

If there isn't currently a way, please consider adding "start location name" and "end location name" as ingredients for IFTTT since the data is available.

Getting it from the CSV, cutting and pasting, is a fine work around but it would be much easier to have IFTTT put it right where I want it in a google sheet.

Thanks

Hi Greg. It sounds like there isn't a way to do this now but thanks for the suggestion. Noted! I'll change your post to an "Idea" topic so it can be tracked as such.

Thanks.   I hope it is a reasonable request that can be accommodated since Automatic clearly has the data already.  Just let me have it via IFTTT! =)
