Using Lookup Table to Pull Different Folders in DropBox (Not by Name)
I’m a beginner and this is a relatively simple process, but it took me a while to figure out so I thought I would share in case it is helpful. I have URLs from QuestionPro survey responses that I need to be converted to files and uploaded to DropBox automatically. However, I need them to sort into different subfolders based on the answer to a QuestionPro survey question, which is not in the folder name and we do not want it to be. The question asks what county the survey responder is from, and each subfolder needs to contain a subgroup of counties. In addition, there is a limit of 5 URLs that can be added to QuestionPro, but any number from 0-5 may be added, and all of these need to be uploaded to DropBox. I started with the QuestionPro new survey trigger in order to be able to pull the URLs and the county from each response. I then used the Zapier Formatter - Lookup table function under Utilities. I set the county answer as the lookup key, then typed in every possible county that co

Automation in Action: APIs vs Webhooks
Automation in Action: APIs vs WebhooksIn simple terms, an API is a set of rules that allow one application to talk to another, while a webhook is a way for an app to provide other applications with real-time information.An API (Application Programming Interface) is a set of protocols and tools for building software applications. It specifies how software components should interact and APIs allow communication between different systems.A Webhook is a way for an app to provide other applications with real-time information. A webhook is a simple HTTP callback, an HTTP POST that occurs when something happens; a simple event-notification via HTTP POST. A webhook delivers data to other applications as it happens, meaning you get data immediately. Both can be used in Zaps with the Webhooks app: https://zapier.com/apps/webhook/integrations#triggers-and-actions

How to get a Dropbox File Direct Download Link
How to get a Dropbox File Direct Download Link To use files in Zap steps a File field will expect a file object or a file url. When using a file url, the file url needs to be publicly accessible and the direct download link to the file. Dropbox Share Links have a designated link structure format that can be adjusted to obtain the direct download link for a file. This is the view link of the file. (ends with dl=0)https://www.dropbox.com/s/xxx?dl=0 You need to use the direct download link of the file. (ends with dl=1)https://www.dropbox.com/s/xxx?dl=1 You can use a Formatter > Text > Replace Zap step to change the end of the Share Link from dl=0 to dl=1.

Thank you "Move Zaps" feature. You the real MVP!
I had several zaps set up for my team but I realized they were on my account, which had limited zaps and tasks available. I was getting ready for the incredibly daunting task of copying each zap and each step across accounts when I stumbled across the “Move Zaps” option in the dropdown. Hallelujah! What would have probably taken me an hour now took me about… five and a half second! Just wanted to share a gratitude post. This is an amazing option.

Creating a Schedule Display?
My goal: I want my tablet to always be displaying the task from my schedule. So if it’s noon, it’s displaying my noon task, 1pm? my 1pm task. I want this to be visually pleasing and to break out of the “heres my outlook calendar” monotony. I was curious on if anyone had any ideas of how I can utilize Zapier for this task? Having it pull from google sheets or outlook was my first thought, but it’s the “display” aspect and the automatic updating I’m struggling to integrate
Find Out Who Maintains Zap Apps - Zapier or App Developers
Did You Know (DYK) most Zap app integrations are maintained by the app developer, rather than Zapier.Be sure to keep that in mind, when suggesting feature requests to Zap app actions/triggers/searches as well as reporting issues.In many cases, it would be best to direct such feedback to the Zap app developer regarding their Zap app integration, although Zapier welcomes feedback about Zap apps.
Hello, I'd like to share an idea about mark dependences of zap actions. Working in zap we delete and edit its actions . Deleting or editing an action will delete or change its output. To easily find out which actions depend on the output of a particular action, it would be helpful to have some indication of this relationship. For example, we could include a mark next to the action's title that shows the numbering of actions that use the output of that action. Similarly, it would also be useful to see which actions provide input to a particular action. Please see the screenshot attached. For instance, if action #8 depends on actions #1 and #3, and actions #9 and #11 depend on the output of action #8, this relationship could be shown visually on the interface. So, as soon as you will delete the output of action #8 from actions #9 and #11, at the output block of action #8 there would be nothing. Also it would be convenient to mark actions, where some hardcode is used, because we used to f
