I want to create an upvoting and downvoting functionality. How can I achieve that using zaps?

This is the workflow I’ve set up right now:

https://webflow.com/blog/upvote-system

  • Weblow List items → Webflow Update item. 

It works fine but there are some limitations. 

I’m now thinking to integrate a form that allows users to submit an item to my webflow page. Then using te present workflow to let them upvote items posted. Workflow would be as follow:

  • Webflow form → Webflow post CMS Collections item
  • Weblow List items → Webflow Update item. 

This works but isn't quite scalable cause it would result in a very large amount of zaps. 

Is there anyway I can achieve a better and smarter results without having to use so many zaps?

I’m not forced to stay in webflow and I am open to explore different solutions and integrations.

 

Maybe Airtable base? Or a Trello board with upvoting which zap to Webflow?

 

I need:

  • A tool to create databases of items.
  • A form submission that allows user to post items. 
  • Upvoting system on these items.
  • A relationship behaviour to link items of different databases together.
  • I will then use something like webflow to build the front-end of all of this.

What is the best integration for Zapier that could allow me to achieve something like this without having to use a humongous amount of zaps?

 

Thanks a lot :P
