The scheduled transfers function will be deprecated on January 15, 2024. Existing scheduled transfers will continue to run up until that date. To avoid any disruption, active scheduled transfers will be migrated into new Zaps that can perform the same workflow. You can learn more about these changes here.
This article will give you a quick overview of Zapier Transfer, and provide some more resources for you to check out.
What is Transfer?
If you’ve ever built a Zap, you’ll be familiar with the trigger (the event that starts a Zap) and action(s) (the event(s) your Zap performs).
Zapier Transfer, however, is a standalone tool with which you can bulk-move data from one app to another.
With Transfer you have control over which data to move, and where you want to move it. During the process you specify which piece of data will go where (in Zaps we call this “mapping fields”) and you can also filter the data as you’re transferring it.
Transfer is currently available as a beta experience, so users can try it and provide feedback.
When to Use Transfer
With Zaps, you can automate your work processes and ensure that information flows between your apps on an ongoing basis. There are times, however, where Transfer is a better fit:
- Migrate historical data for Zaps:
- Manage one-time data transfers for big projects:
- Schedule recurring transfers for moving bulk data:
