I am triggering a Zap off of a Slack message from a Post in a Channel
This is automating a bot with a message based upon slacks in this channel
What is happening is the bot is responding to the initial channel message (in thread) and then any subsequent messages in thread it is also responding to - creating a lot of noise.
What I’d like to do is filter something like “has zap run with _____ ID (from Slack trigger)” and stop action.
How can I see if a trigger with an ID has triggered the zap previously, and filter that out?

You’d have to log those into a GSheet or Airtable Base to then check against before deciding how to Filter: https://zapier.com/apps/filter/help
@Crusher! To expand on Troy’s suggestions here, you will need to add 3 steps to this Zap, which involves adding 2 steps before your “Bot” action and another one after. Your Zap should look like this:
