I’m trying to create a Slackbot of sorts that posts a daily message at 9am every weekday that assigns the next person in a list to a recurring task.
Right now, I got as far as setting up Formatter and then “Pick from list”. However, the only options are returning the first item, last item, or random item in the list. Instead, I want it to pick the next item in the list from the previous one that was chosen. Basically, for every new daily Slack message that gets posted, it just chooses the next name in the list, instead of being random.
Any way to accomplish this?

Check out Storage by Zapier: https://zapier.com/apps/storage/help
You can use Storage to save a value that can be later retrieved and used in a Zap.
