Since Zapier first launched more than 10 years ago, we've seen you use automation to accomplish incredible things. You've created ongoing workflows that run entire projects, functions, and businesses in the background.
But there's always been a piece missing: Until now, Zapier could only take action on data added to an app after your Zap was activated.
Today, that changes. [We're opening up a new beta experience called Transfer](zapier.com/transfer), a simple way to move data between apps, in batches, no matter what time period it's from.
Transfer gives you complete, on-demand control over your app data. You can use it to:
- Manage large-scale data projects, where you're moving hundreds of records from one app to another. For example, you might use Transfer to move all your customers from an eCommerce platform to a new email marketing app, so you can manage customers in both places.
- Backfill a new Zap with critical data. If you built a Zap that logs new leads in a sales tool, but activated it halfway through your lead-generation campaign, Transfer can grab those missing leads.
- Move data on-demand for ongoing projects. Transfer gives you a full view of all the data in your apps, and you can pick-and-choose what you want to move. That means it's ideal for automation where you need a little more control over what moves, when, like a project management process.
How to get started
Transfer is available today on all Zapier plans. It's in beta, so expect some changes over the next few months. And you can use it to move data from select launch partners to any of Zapier's 3,000+ integrations.
To use Transfer:
- Visit transfer.zapier.com (alternatively, you can find Transfer on your dashboard, in the menu on the left side of the screen)
- Click the "Continue" button and select your source and destination apps
- Map your data to your preferred fields
- Select the records you want to move and let us transfer them for you
We put together a full guide to building your first Transfer, too. We're excited to see what you build with Transfer, and thanks for using Zapier!
