Question

Is it possible to set and access some preset global constants (my email and mobile) in my Zaps?

So I just setup two Zaps, and it was fun and easy:

  • send me a txt when an customer event happens in CRM via Webhook
  • send me a txt when an customer event happens in WordPress via Webhook

I filled in my mobile number each time. I thought about clicking “Share” but stopped when I remembered my number is in the Zap. And I thought to myself, and maybe this question should be re-titled as: “Can I access my email and mobile number in a Zap when it wasn’t in any of the source trigger?

I supposed I want a global constant variable. Available to all my Zaps.

Is that what a named variable is?

@tomachinz to clarify your question:

 

Are you asking if, when you share a zap, if something you typed in as a constant (such as your phone number as the receiving phone on an SMS) will be available to the person you shared the zap with?

Yes that is what I mean! Basically, that’s why I didn’t share my Zap.

Here is a simple zap I created. Can you see my info in it?
