Timeout erros


I have problem with generating Google Slides presentation with data from Google Spreadsheets. Presentation has around 30 pages and 1,5 mb. Sometimes presentation is created correctly (with data), sometimes not. Every time I get error and my Zap is switch off :(

I tried every method from the article: but I cannot delete some data or images (all highly compressed).

Zapier support told me that it is not possible to change 30 seconds limits even for premium plans.

Is there any method to deal with it? Maybe create 2 presentation and connect them together?

Like @Saastronomical  says this will only be possible with creating your own function using code and the Slide API. Like the support team says its not possible to increase the Zap activity time. 
Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hey! Haven’t tested, but I think You’d be able to do this with the Slides API -

Maybe create every presentation as an individual slide, get all the slides, and create a presentation from them?


I hope somebody else has a better idea though
