Expected Task Processing Delay Time?

I notice on the site that planned maintenance occurred 12/2 and that we “may notice some Task processing delays over the next few hours as we return to normal operation.”

I have a reliable Google Sheet → Google Calendar instant zap that is seemingly not triggering today.  I’m used to it triggering within a few seconds.  Nothing has changed with this zap.  How long of a processing delay should we expect?  Or is it likely something broke within the zap?

I see Zapier has now posted an update on


Identified - We have identified an issue with the database having issues catching up with the website. This can result in:

1. New Zaps can’t be created, tested
2. Zaps can’t be turned on
3. Newly-made authentication/connections aren’t actually working

Zaps that are up and running should not be affected.
