Optimizing Zap for less Task usage.

So as the title suggests, I want to optimize my zap to use less tasks as one ‘loop’ will eat up 8 tasks and I have a lot of iterations to run through sometime so that monthly budget gets used up quick.


Here’s what I have so far. I tried combining all of the code together but it made it convoluted and impossibly difficult to troubleshoot so for simplicity I’ve kept them apart. Step 6 is necessary as well because the trigger doesn’t contain all of the information I would need (specifically the date).


Is there a better way to go about setting up this zap so that it uses less tasks per run? Would webhook be the way to go? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you

Hi @DarkRoom 

Good question.

Ideally all Code and Formatter steps would be performed via 1 Code step.

You can add the logic for Formatter Step 7 into a Code step if it’s not dependent on the output from Step 6.
