Product Updates

New In Transfer — 

Transfer by Zapier, allows scheduled Transfers to recognize related records in the destination integration and determine if a new record should be created or if records should be updated with new information. This ensures that data in the destination is up-to-date with the source of truth. The update includes new options for selecting destination app actions and the ability to recognize changes to user-editable fields in the source app. The first release of this functionality includes Shopify, Zendesk, and QuickBooks integrations.
