Question

Batching data export in one zap


Hi There,

 

I want to send a batch of orders three times a day from shopify to my sequel program. 

 

How can i set up a zap which lets me send through a batch of new orders at different intervals throughout the day, and not repeatedly send through the same orders from ealier?

 

I’d really appreciate any help with this.

 

Thanks in advance :)

Hugh,

 

Hello! This sounds really useful, I hope you can get it set up. Do you know about Digest by Zapier? It can collect information throughout the day and send it to you at scheduled intervals. I think it can do exactly what you want. Here’s some information to help get you started: https://zapier.com/help/doc/what-digest

Digest looks very good.

 

I think you could also use Delays, @Hugh.  They would queue up throughout the day and then run at the appointed time.

Out of interest, what is the use case for batching rather than letting them run rea-time (ish)

 

 

Thanks for the replies.

 

@Davidh88 We’re trying to batch orders coming through on shopify to match the rate of production for order capturing. 

 

Ideally we’d like to automate a few steps in our process and automated batching would significantly reduce the amount of time we spend doing it manually.
