Can I manually launch a 'Schedule by Zapier' triggered Zap using a REST API?

I have a Zap that is triggered by a ‘Schedule by Zapier’ trigger every day at midnight.  However, I would also like to be able to manually trigger the zap as needed, perhaps using a REST API call.  Is there any way to manually execute a Zap that is set up to be triggered on a schedule?

Hi @ZapFanABC 

Good question.

You can trigger Zaps on demand using this Zap trigger: Webhook - Catch Hook

 

You can have 2 Zaps.

Zap 1

  1. Trigger: Schedule
  2. Action: Webhook - POST
    1. Use the webhook URL in Zap 2, Step 1
    2. Make sure to include a timestamp query string parameter or a body data parameter to make each request unique

Zap 2

  1. Trigger: Webhook - Catch Hook
    1. This generates a unique webhook URL to use in Zap 1, Step 2
  2. Action: ???
