Using the Zap Description field

I have a client with a LOT of zaps, and he has painstakingly taken the time to create a description for each one to help keep track of them. 


It seems however that

1 - Zapiers search function does not search the descriptions 

2 - Zapier Manager’s trigger “New Zap Created” does not pull the description field in its processed data. 

  1. Exporting a zap gives you a json file that also does not seem to contain it. 

Does anyone know of a way to get to this data field so it can be used?

Hi @AppGuyAaron 

Those would make good feedback and feature requests to submit to Zapier Support:


I agree the Zap search function is lacking.

NOTE: It doesn’t search Zaps that are Drafts.
