Hi all,

sorry if this is a stupid question, didn't find an answer by searching: i have compartmentalized my zaps, e.g. have split zaps into different parts for easier management. since there is no easy way (short of re-doing the zap) to merge zaps, i would like to keep them separate, but "chain" them together so that when one zap finishes, it triggers another zap. how do i most effortlessly achieve that?

Hi @davidweiss

What you'll want to do is end each zap with a "Webhook -> POST Call" that calls the other zap. To achieve this you'll need to have the next zap in the chain be triggered by a "Webhook -> Catch Hook" - that will give you the URL you'll need to add to your post call.

You can add fields to your webhook to pass data data between zaps.

And this leads to the possibility of iteratively "looping" Zaps through records of variable quantities, as outlined by @BowTieBots!
