Gmail new email trigger
I’m using a Gmail ‘new email’ trigger for my Zap. It works fine, but today I discovered that the zap had turned itself off for some unknown reason. When turned it back on, it continued to work, but there were some emails received during the period when the Zap was turned off that were not processed. I would expect the unprocessed emails to be queued and then processed when the Zap is restarted - is there a way to make that happen? If there is not, then is there a way to make sure the Zap does not turn itself off, or at least pings an alert of some kind of it does?

Where is the the "zap editor"?
I am trying to reconnect an account I disconnected. I am following the help screen. It says I can connect an account from the “Zap editor” by selecting Connect an Account. For the life of me I cannot find the Zap editor. I search on zap editor in help and don’t get any help on it. How do I open the zap editor?? I also suggest to Zapier: Please modify your help screen on connecting an account to include a path to the editor Please add a help topic on the editor. Thank you.
Reply to existing Gmail message
When someone posts in a specific Slack Channel, I want it to email via Gmail and I have this step down. I included TS (which I believe is unique) in both the subject and the body. Went Slack to Path Path A = if TS does not exist Send new email (good up to this part) Path B, I want to reply to the original email if the TS already exists (someone replies to the thread). There is a find email option but that kind of dead ends after it finds an email. There is also a Reply to email option but not sure how to create a gmail search thread here and coming up dry on Googling this.

Automatically repost CMS blog posts from webflow accross social media platforms
Hello, I run a digital marketing agency. I build websites for my clients using webflow. My clients wants to automatically repost the blog on webflow posts across their social media pages such as Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, and Instagram. The idea is, once the blog post is uploaded on the CMS, the data gets pulled and automatically uploaded on the social media pages mentioned above. Is this something I can do currently with zappier?
Google Sheets: will only write values to the first column
Hello All, I am trying to create a zap that will create a new sheet in a google sheet, add column headers, then write in several steps in the rows below. This zap is hooked up to our project manager software Trello and is triggered by the creation of a new project. My zap will run when a new project is created, it creates the new tab in the google sheet, adds 5 columns as headers, but then fails when it tries to create rows of data that are the subtasks of that project. I am using one action to lookup the data in Trello and it returns a JSON of the “checklist data”. From there I have tried multiple processes like converting to text (as line items), running the utilities Line Itemizer, and feeding the JSON directly to the Create Speadsheet Row in Google Sheets Action. Each attempt this step fails if I tell it to write to multiple columns. However it runs fine if I just write to the first column. The error it gives me was The spreadsheet row could not be sent to Google Sheets. The
Trying to toggle a checkbox on table when a new record is added in another table in the same base
I have a tank table and a tank ticket table. The ticket table has a relationship setup that way users can pick which tank a ticket belongs to. When the ticket record is created I would like to set a flag on the tank table to show a ticket has been opened. Every time I do this the zap will work in testing but only for the row that I do it for. The zap will also work for other new records when I manually process it. It seems as if the trigger only works on manual processing or trigger testing. I have tried two types of zaps (1) new record > (2) search for existing record from step one’s tank key > (3) update tank key ticket flag to 1 I also tried new record triggers update (skipping the search)
Finding and UPDATING, OR creating new, contacts in Wave
I’m putting together a zap that takes a new CRM contact (Zoho Forms into Streak CRM) and then updating information if it’s been found in Wave and Google Contacts. Presently (at least with Wave) I don’t see a way to CHANGE a contact’s information. It is possible to “search for” a contact, but if it exists I have to create a whole other workflow to update it. See, if it DOESN’T exist, I have the checkbox to “create one” but there’s no such checkbox to “update if exists”. You would think that Paths could solve this problem, but there’s no way to validate whether or not the search was successful, as far as I can tell, so there’s no way to tell Zapier what to do next depending on the outcome. How can I search for and then either update or create new in one zap? Thoughts?
Need help with google sheet
Hello everyone, hope you are doing well. I am using a payment gateway and it is connected to zapier. In google sheets I have a fixed template which makes reciepts for individual user. So it has specific cells for name, price and some calculation that take place. I want all the data that is collected using the payment gateway to get stored in those specific cells that are there in my google sheets and then once all the data is filled, I want the google sheet to be saved as a PDF and then repeat this whole process for the next payment. I would really appreciate help with this.
Which App enables Amazon fees to be exported to Wave accounting or Freshbooks?
Hi there, Today I registered to Wave, a free cloud accounting system, and created a zap using the Amazon Seller central app in connecting to my Amazon account. I successfully exported my last sale, but it doesn’t seem to export any Amazon fullfilment or PPC fees. Do you know if there is a different App that is required to do so or if it doesn’t exist? Any other suggestions or alternatives are welcome. Thanks,
Convert to Markdown
There is a cool chrome extension called CopyCat that allows you to copy text from a webpage and convert it to a different format: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/copycat/khbjeknhjcdbijopmdbnjpncellpbjhf?hl=en Recently, my company blocked this extension, so I’d like to try and recreate some of the functionality with Zapier. I want to copy a link address from a webpage and convert the format to Markdown so that I can paste the formatted link somewhere else. For example convert https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperlink to [Hyperlink](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperlink) SImple idea, but I’m not sure how of if this is possible with Zapier. Any suggestions?

Change email address associated with Zapier Community

Can y’all let me know how I might change that?
Question importing Email into Google Sheet
I am looking for a way to import Orders from a Shop (without zapier integration) into a Google Sheet. I managed to import the email to the google sheet but all informations are in one field in the google sheet. I would like to fill every line of the email into one field of the google sheet. Is this possible? Can you link me to any guides/tutorials?
Conditionally setting field in Freshdesk ticket based on input stream
We’re using Zapier to create a ticket in Freshdesk whenever a new row is added to a Google sheet, A required field in Freshdesk is PRIORITY, with fixed value of Low (1), Medium (2), High (3) and Urgent (4). We have a column in the sheet (rating) that is a proxy for this priority with possible values 1-10. When creating the Freshdesk ticket I would like to conditionally set the PRIORITY based on the data in that column, e.g. if rating is 1-3 set Priority to Low, if 4-6 Medium, etc. I know I could do this with Paths in Zapier, but seems unnecessarily complex to create 4 different paths simply to set this one value correctly. We’re looking for a way to map / transform / manipulate the column value to appropriately set the Priority. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
How to export and upload a file as a .csv
Hi, I’m new to zapier. I have a Zapier integration with a cloud based system called Arlo. It is exporting data fine into Zapier. Zapier then sends this data to MS Excel 365 into a spreadsheet. This Spreadsheet then uploads to Brick FTP. All fine. however the format the excel file is uploaded to is .xslx Our internal sales and accounts pacakage requires this file to be in .csv format in order to pull the file in from Brick FTP. Is there any way in which I can convert the .XLSX file to CSV? there does not seem to be a way to convert it. I have seen another post where it suggests to use Google Sheets and make the sheet publically accessible for the ZAP to be able to see the document and convert it, but this concerns me as the data we are handling contains customer information and needs to be securely handled. Thank you for any tips/suggestions. Regards Dan
