Over the past few months, we’ve released numerous highly-requested product features. Many of them enable teams to build and manage Zaps more easily.
Let’s take a look at the new features that empower teams to create, keep track of, and control mission-critical workflows—at scale.
For those of you who would like a written recap, see below :)
Build together fearlessly
We’ve improved the Zap editor, making the experience for teams building Zaps together even better!
Drag and drop steps/paths
While this happened late in 2022, it bears mentioning since it had been so highly-requested by our users. Being able to drag and drop steps and paths within Zaps was definitely a quality-of-life improvement!
Copy & paste steps/paths within and across Zaps
This saves time and enables teams to build workflows faster than ever. Pick and choose the steps you need from existing Zaps, and place them in new Zaps.
Editor performance improvements
In general, we’ve been working hard to make our Zap editor snappier and more efficient to work with. A lot of this can’t be seen, but hopefully those of you who spend a fair amount of time building Zaps can feel it.
Manage processes confidently
You’ve no doubt got specific processes that need to be online at all times. And if something goes wrong with a workflow, you need a way to get back online and back to business. We’ve introduced some features that help you do just that.
Version history and rollback
Last year, we released Version History and Version Preview on all paid plans. This enabled users to save and track multiple versions of a Zap (awesome!), including descriptions of who made the changes and why.
This year, we've built even more functionality, adding Version Rollback on Pro, Team, and Company plans. That means that in addition to seeing a history of previous Zap versions, you can restore a previous working version. Troubleshooting just got easier!
Custom error notifications
Some Zaps will require immediate attention if something goes wrong. For example, Zaps that manage leads, sales, onboarding, etc. Other workflows might not be as critical, like that Zap that texts you when it’s going to rain.
Cut through the noise and escalate your business-stopping Zaps. Pro, Team and Company users can configure email notifications by Zap. Choose to be notified immediately, with a summary, or block notifications.
Advanced Zap settings
Users on the Company plan now have two advanced Zap settings: autoreplay override and error ratio override.
Autoreplay override ignores your default account setting for autoreplay. If your workflow has a failed Zap run, you can set each Zap to either always replay or never replay.
Error ratio override lets you control whether an errored Zap should turn off or keep playing. We know that some errors are expected, and those errors shouldn't prevent your Zaps from running.
Prefer to keep errored Zaps running and receive fewer error notifications? Customize your email rules to be notified of errors with a summary instead of immediately.
Maintain oversight every step of the way
While you likely want to empower your teams to harness the power of automation, you’ll also want to be aware of what they’re automating.
With the next two features, we make that possible :)
Super admin role
With this role, you can designate someone in your account as a Super Admin, allowing them to help you manage all the Zaps (even the private ones). Users on the Company account can appoint multiple Super Admins.
Owners & Super Admins on Team and Company accounts can see an audit log across their entire account so that they feel comfortable adding new users to their account.
Drag and drop Zaps into folders
Efficiently manage your Zaps at scale. Drag and drop Zaps between folders to organize them.
We hope you’re enjoying all of the improvements we’re making, and features we’re adding, in order to enable better building, organization, and collaboration when using Zapier. We’ve done a lot in the past few months, but we’re not quite done yet. Stay tuned for even more updates in the coming months :)
