Hope this helps!

My name is Lisa Orr and I’m a product manager at Zapier. We recently launched App Extensions a new tool that lets you build a custom action in the Editor.
We’re looking for users to join the App Extensions beta program, so if you want to learn more about building custom actions that fit exactly what you need, let’s chat.
