Prevent Zap A from running if Zap B has run in the last X minutes / with the same variable

Hi all,

 

Hope you’re well. I’ve been a bit stuck on this issue:

 

I’m looking for a way to ensure that one zap doesn’t trigger another zap, without using custom fields. 

 

For instance, Zap A fires - Zap B DOESN’T fire because Zap A has fired within 1 minute.

 

Or, even better:

 

Zap A Fires - Zap B DOESN’T fire because the email used in Zap A is the same as the email used in Zap B

Hi @LuciusBMoody 

Sounds like you’d need to keep a log of the data to reference to handle the logic.

Try using a GSheet or an Airtable Base to log the data.

Airtable: https://zapier.com/apps/airtable/integrations#triggers-and-actions

Thanks for the tip - that’s made the system a lot neater now!
