Trying to: read RSS feed from a website/blog, and only post one item automatically to a social media page, daily

I have tried this with posting from RSS directly to a Facebook page, as well as from RSS to a social media scheduling app (Hootsuite or Buffer); in both cases, the Zap works, but it floods itself with every single new RSS item it finds, which in turn floods my social media page.

Is there a way to tell Zapier RSS, "only retrieve one item from this feed"? The goal I am trying to reach is that my Zap takes RSS as an input, and posts only the latest RSS item to social media, once daily.

Hi @RoswellFirelabs , 

 

I think the RSS zap will only pull in multiple items. Having it being posted once daily could be done with the digest zap. But only pulling the latest item is a little tricky :thinking:
