Hello, as I undestood from FAQ, Zapier checks new content for trigger (wordpress legacy) ~every 15 minutes.

But it is possible to configure Zapier checking time for different values, for example 30 min or 1 hour?

I mean, I found Zapier Schedule, but when I use it I can’t setup  “new post” on Step 2 because it possible only on Trigger step.

Hey @Stanislav ,


What are you trying to achieve with this? Also Did you try an Delay by Zapier in action where you can delay executions.

Hi @Stanislav 

Trigger types

There are 2 types of triggers:

  1. Polling trigger: the majority of triggers are polling triggers.
    1. With a polling trigger, Zapier will check for new data from your trigger every 1 to 15 minutes in order to start your Zap, depending on your pricing plan.
  2. Instant trigger: with an instant trigger, your trigger app will send Zapier an instant notification whenever there's new data.
    1. Zaps with instant triggers are labeled Instant on your dashboard and in the Zap editor.
