Schedule by Zapier bi-weekly

I’m building a Zap to send a Slack message to my team on a bi-weekly basis to submit their topics they want to talk about during our team huddle. Trying to get more collaboration out of them. 

 

I’m struggling to get this right though. I thought I had it by using a Delay after Schedule by Zapier weekly, but that didn’t work and everyone was confused this morning when it said there was a team huddle this afternoon, when in fact it is next Monday.

 

Currently I have the zap set up to message my team a week before the meeting for any topics, then follow up again as a thread to that message on Friday of the same week for topics on Monday. 

 

Any idea, without using code, how I could do this? I saw another thread on this and the person proposed using code, but I don’t understand code to know what to do with that. I also couldn’t figure out how to respond in that thread (sorta a n00b to the community).

Hey - Is there anything stopping you from just creating 2 zaps - One for one day and one for another?

Not sure on the bit that’s breaking here - So any more info would be excellent

I recently built a zap template for this very situation. You can access it here (with instructions):

Cool. I would need it every other week, though. Your zap, while super helpful anyways for other ideas, would trigger more than once in the same week. 

Am I understanding that correctly?

Yes - twice a week… but I can also build you a template for once every other week.

Will send that tomorrow.

@AndrewJDavison_Luhhu Awesome! Copied it and I’ll give it a go. Seeing how it was laid out gave me some ideas on other zaps. Thanks for the help!!
