I'm putting together some blog posts - a roundup of decent Zapier tutorials out in the wild. I already keep a spreadsheet with links to good ones I find, but I'm sure I've missed a few (and maybe some of you want to plug yours).
What I'm looking for:
- Either video tutorials or well-written, good-length blog post guides (with screenshots).
- Can be beginner, intermediate or advanced level (I'll do a few different posts).
- Can be focussed on just Zapier or "How to use Zapier + X app to do Y thing".
Excited to see what people have! 😀
Not to toot our own horn, but I think that the Zapier University videos on YouTube are pretty good.
I'd love to see what non-Zapier made videos are out there - does anyone have any recommendations?

@jimmyrose is listed as a Zapier Expert.
I don't know how many people it'd be useful for but I've put one together that's helped me out after I switched to working from home - Automate your Slack status to show what you're working on
Also, while I think, this might be a good addition re:
Zapier wants to know: What are your favorite Zaps when attending a conference? I could see an extension of this being a good way to alert colleagues that you’re at a conference... perhaps even going as far as telling people which session you’re in if you’re attending as a team.
Please feel free to, @CohanRobinson on Twitter
Ooh, I've not used Zapier for anything conference wise but off the top of my head there might be something in combining a Google Calendar with the rest of the Slack automation. Have the triggers be the GCal Event start and Event ended instead of the timer stop/start events in my tutorial. From there you put the talks you're attending into Google Calendar and let your Slack status do its thing
Thanks for thinking of my request,
@AndrewJDavison_Luhhu ! That's a great suggestion. I've passed it on to the writer who's working on the piece.
@Cohan , not sure if you know about the Zapier-specific app tutorials you can find in our App Directory. Here's an example: https://zapier.com/apps/google-calendar/tutorials
We don't have these for every app, but if there's an app you're particularly interested in, it's worth checking out!
We've just published a new guide! It's about getting data into workflow max / xero practice manager, which currently doesn't integrate with Zapier natively... https://www.optimi.co.nz/blog/2019/10/23/how-to-automate-with-workflowmax-aka-xero-practice-manager-and-zapier
@Optimi - will add this for sure!
