Can you clarify how a Transfer differs from a Zap, exactly? Would appreciate a rundown of what’s different (and/or the same).

Sure thing! 

  • Zaps can only trigger from new data added to your trigger app after turning on a Zap. Existing data (ie. any data that existed in your trigger app before turning on your Zap) is not able to be picked up by Zaps.
  • Transfer is a beta feature that you can use to send existing data from one app to another. Transfer lets you select which data to send so you only send the data that you want.

We have some common Transfer use cases listed in this post: 

Hope that helps!
