Hello, I am finding myself in a situation where an automated or scheduled trigger will not accomplish what is needed for a particular workflow.

 

What I am finding is that I need a way to have a human trigger the Zap. I am not aware of the different interfaces Zapier has in this regard. I know I can use Zapier email to have the human send an message to trigger the Zap, but I was looking for something a bit more simple. Either a web addon button or something to that effect.

 

Thank you so much kind people. I hope you have a wonderful week.

Hi @Walking Comfort!

If you use the Google Chrome browser, you can use the Zapier extension: https://zapier.com/help/create/other-functions/use-the-zapier-chrome-extension

This way you can choose which Zap to trigger, and even include a form where you can fill in some information.

You can also check out this article I wrote, about various ways to trigger Zaps:

Hope that helps!
