hello everyone, I want to repeat my first task to increment a value in a base (storage). My first task is a catch hook which is validated as soon as a user subscribes to a newsletter. During 24 hours I would like to increase my value and after 24 hours I would like to send a message in chanel slack. Should I use the "Delay after queue" function with a delay of 24 hours after my 1st step for this?
My goal is to get the number of subscriptions to my newsletter per day and send this number in a slack channel

Hi @Abondance 

Good question.

Help article about the Delay app: https://help.zapier.com/hc/en-us/articles/8496288754829-Add-delays-to-Zaps

I think you’ll want to go with a different approach using 2 Zaps.

 

Zap 1

  1. Trigger: Webhook - Catch Hook
  2. Action: Storage - Increment Value (+1)

 

Zap 2

  1. Trigger: Schedule (Daily)
  2. Action: Storage - Get Value
  3. Action: Slack - Send Channel Message
  4. Action: Storage - Set Value
    1. Set to 0 to reset
