Hi everyone, I’m a product manager at Zapier and I just wanted to announce a small feature we’re now beta testing to make it easier to keep tabs on what your Zaps are doing.
“Create Zap Report” is a new action in the Zapier Manager app that can generate a report of a given Zap’s activity for the last seven days:
When it runs, the action will return the information about the Zap and summary data like:
Successful runs: The number of times the Zap ran without an error
Times triggered: The number of times the Zap triggered (whether or not it completed successfully)
Tasks used: The total number of tasks used by the Zap
CSV (file and URL): A CSV file with the raw data for each step (can later be used in fields that accept files, like an email attachment), and a URL to that same CSV
Start time: The beginning of the reporting period
End time: The end of the reporting period
All data is for the seven days prior to this Zap running.
To try this out, just use this Zap Template which uses Schedule to run every week on 9am on Monday and Email by Zapier to send an email with a pre-formatted message that looks like this:
You can customize the day of the week and time you want your Zap to run, choose the Zap you want to report on, and the body of the email and who to send it to. Maybe you want to send your boss a weekly report of how many leads came in based on the number of successful runs:
You could even replace the Email step with a later action of your choice, like adding the data to a Google Sheet or whatever else you want! By monitoring the Zaps that power your business you can generate high-level insights into how things are going, keep your team in the loop, and more. We’re excited to see how you use this!
For now, this action is only available via a Zap Template, so click here to get started.
If you have any thoughts or feedback on this action, including any requests for how we can make it better or ideas for how you’ll use it, please chime in below!
