I’m trying to understand how Zapier calculates the number of tasks when using Line Items midway through the zap.
I have a zap which runs 3 tasks. After the third task, 4 line items are processed in the final 2 tasks. In the task history, there will be 4 instances of the zap showing, each with 3 + 2 = 5 tasks used.
If I’m understanding correctly, this would be 5*4 = 20 tasks used. But the first three tasks were only executed once, so I would think that the total number of tasks would be 3 + 2*4 = 11. It seems like I would be charged for these phantom tasks which aren't being executed.
To take this to the extreme, suppose I have a zap with 100 tasks and then at the end of that zap I have 1 task using Line Item support for 10 items. Am I getting charged for 100 + 1*10 = 110 tasks or am I getting charged for 101*10 = 1010 tasks? A thousand tasks weren’t run, but that’s how it would look when viewing the task history.
Is there something I’m misunderstanding about how the number of tasks is being calculated when using Line Item support? How exactly does Zapier compute the cost in these scenarios?
