Can we have more than 3 paths in a path group please?

I get this error message on a conditionally run… → “Sorry, you can only add 3 paths right now.”

 

Thanks!

Hi @patrickmast 

You can submit feature request to Zapier Support here: https://zapier.com/app/get-help

In my opinion, if you are trying to use more than 3 Paths in 1 Zap, then you ought to consider making the Zap dynamic perhaps with a lookup table (e.g. GSheet or Airtable), or using webhooks to daisy chain Zaps together, and/or using Sub-Zaps.

Paths are great, but do have limitations at scale.

Some news for @patrickmast , and everybody using Paths in Zapier workflows. It’s now possible to add up to 5 Paths in your Zaps! ⚡️

If you find a Zap needs more than 5-Paths-wide, our Support team could help to increase the limit for a particular Zap, or advise on another method that’s right for your workflow.

@Troy Tessalone’s excellent advice from before can also be a great fit for many workflows — other methods like Lookup Tables, Google Sheets and Airtable can help to make individual Zaps more dynamic. And Troy’s ideas to connect multiple Zaps with Webhooks or Sub-Zaps can further scale up your workflows!
