Assuming this is a polling trigger - create a synthetic id field that is unique to the update, and make sure that your results are returned in reverse chronological order by update time.

 

A synthetic id could be object id + last updated timestamp, or object id + version number. 

Copy the original id to a new variable so it’s available to users to use in their Zaps

something like

const object_id = id;

id = `${object_id}-${timestamp}` ;

This will force Zapier’s deduper to recognize each update as a new event to process.

 

An alternative is to use REST Hooks. Then you just send a message to the hook for each update. Zapier applies no deduplication for hook messages.
