Hi everyone!

I’m a journalist and organizer using Zapier to automate local news workflows in New Jersey and I’d love some help brainstorming additional ways to leverage automation to help meet the news and information needs of my community.

The team at Zapier wrote a blog post summarizing how we’re using Zapier now.

We’re upgrading from the 2k to 5k usage tier because we keep hitting our task limit at the end of the month. So I’ve got more than 2,500 tasks to spare! I’m a one-person operation, so I’m looking for stuff that helps me find, filter, or move info. 

Some questions I’m asking are:

  • How can I use filtering and tagging to improve our website or create additional news products without much added effort?
  • What can I do with my local government’s meetings RSS feed
  • What kind of content can I template to automate a variety of Instragram posts?

I’m really eager to hear what this community has to share! Thanks in advance.

Hi there @simongalp - Thanks for posting in our community. Whoa, this is really cool that you’re looking to utilize Zapier in full! 

  • What is your website’s platform based on? I believe we have a lot of Zaps for WordPress, but if you use a different platform, please let us know which.
  • Here’s a tips and trick list of what you can do with RSS feeds: Is there anything in particular that you were hoping to achieve here?
  • Here’s the Zapbook for Instagram for you to check out some Zap ideas that you can try to automate your content: I believe the content types are photos and videos.

Hope to hear back from you soon!
