Hi everyone, I was wondering how Zapier can help people who suddenly need to WFH right now. If you work remotely, do you have any Zaps that help you be a more productive remote worker? Do you have Zaps that help you stay organized? I would love to share these ideas on Twitter. If you share from your own account and tag Zapier, we would love to retweet you! If not, drop a link to your favorite Zap below and we can share it. Thank you!
Zapier-owned Zap App Integrations There are ~300+ Zapier-owned Zap app integrations.This includes the ~30 native Zap app integrations: https://zapier.com/apps/categories/zapier-toolsThese are usually the most common/popular and critical Zap app integrations.That is about 5% of the 5,000+ public Zap apps in the Zapier App Directory: https://zapier.com/appsYes, there are private Zap apps and invite-only Zap apps.However, there is no public list available that lists these Zapier-owned Zap app integrations.You can submit a ticket with Zapier Support to request this resource be made available for reference: https://zapier.com/app/get-help While most apps on Zapier are built and maintained by the app developers themselves, Zapier keeps an internal list of app requests.This is a common misconception.If there is a bug, feedback, or feature requests related to a Zap app integration, those can be submitted via a ticket to Zapier Support to be logged: https://zapier.com/app/get-helpBut, more ofte
Hi, all!I work with Chiefs-of-Staff on teams at VC-backed startups.My clients find creating and sharing meeting minutes can be super time-consuming, so I created a Zapier pipeline that integrates automatically generated Google Meet transcripts with OpenAI to produce comprehensive meeting minutes, including:A summary, Key insights, Top quotes, Requests for help from the rest of the company, and Feedback for the meeting facilitators/participantsThis is then posted to the company Slack.Here’s a tutorial on how to build a Zapier Zap that connect with your own data and automatically creates meeting summaries!There’s so much more I’d like to do with this, including linking directly to video clips of the quotes, storing the transcript in a vector DB like Pinecone so it can be queried discursively later (many via a Slack bot w/ access to the company’s private knowledge repo?), and incorporating context in re the company’s quarterly goals into the prompts…I had a blast creating this pipeline wi
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.

This conversation is more of a “Howto” than a question. I haven’t found much in the Zapier community on how to filter based off of what was edited on an issue, so I thought it would be helpful to others. The below information has been tested on Jira Software Cloud, so I’m not sure how correct it is for Jira Server. IntroductionCurrently with Zapier’s platform, they only have three different triggers, An issue being created, an issue being created with JQL, and an issue being edited. With the “issue edited” trigger, there is no way to determine what was edited, and all that is returned is the full breadth of the ticket as if it was returned in JSON format from an API.This makes the “issue edited” trigger almost useless without filters considering I don’t know of anybody that would want a zap to trigger every time some small change occurs on an issue. However, there is some stuff that we can do with this. WorkflowThe best way I have found to reliably get what was edited on a zap, is to:U
A colleague asked for my help to reduce the amount of steps it takes for those on the her team to setup an environment for new projects. These steps currently take about 2.5 minutes each time they get a new project. The steps include...1. Open appropriate Google Drive folder2. Name the folder by copy/pasting the project name3. Create a shortcut pointing to the original Quote Request sheet provided by client4. Create an internal version of the Quote Request prefaced with [INTERNAL] in the nameSo, I got to work and created a Zap which is triggered via an Alchemer form that the point person on her team fills out with the following information...1. Project Name2. Project Code3. Link to Quote Request Sheet4. Team member's emailZapier monitors Alchemer and once a form is submitted, it then does all of the above work on behalf of the form submitter. An email is sent to the submitter once the bot is done which includes a link to the new folder.Here's the diagram of the workflow…

Hi,I’ve successfully connected my SQL database (new row detected) to create a new row in a gsheet.My SQL Db is updated in batch, so a dozen or so rows are created at once.The zap then run X amount of time to add rows in the sheet. Is there a way to do a batch that would zapp all rows at once and save up on the numbers of task ?Maybe with a utility which would act as a tampon ? Thanks
For the longest time, I could not figure out a way to have QuestionPro survey responses upload to DropBox automatically as a PDF. I finally figured out a solution so I thought I would share and include my process in case any of the other steps would be helpful. I’m a beginner in Zapier so these are rough stabs at what I was trying to do. The DropBox zap allows you to create custom text files in DropBox. However, our surveys included signatures which needed to be included in the survey response. Try Number 1: QuestionPro has an email notification function which allows you to automatically send responses as they come in to any email you identify. I started by experimenting with this and having the email sent to the Zapier email, then I used Zapier formatting to pull the html and a HTML converter application to convert it to a PDF. Initially, the HTML converter created one long PDF that was difficult to read, so I used the Zapier Formatter to split the HTML into chunks before converting i
So in my other post I described how I set up a zap which creates a Google Doc from a QuestionPro response which includes the image of the signature by using HTML. The next problem I ran into was that 2 questions in the survey were formatted as tables and particularly long. They wasted a lot of space in the survey response document that was created when they were blank. So I needed to figure out a way to exclude or remove these questions from the response document when they were blank so the document was shorter. I am a beginner, but I thought I would include the steps I went through in case they are of any help. They may not be the most efficient way of accomplishing my goals. Try Number 1: The key words here are “exclude” or “remove.” I started by trying to figure out how I might remove that section of the html if the responses to those questions were blank. I intended to use Zapier formatting to find and remove the html for the blank questions after applying a filter that tests whet
⚠️ Points of Failure for Zaps Zaps have 3 Points of Failure:Apps used in Zaps If an app used in a Zap step has issues Check the App’s status page. Example for Airtable: https://status.airtable.com Zapier infrastructure If infrastructure used by Zapier has issues Check the Zapier Status Page: https://status.zapier.com Human interference If a human modifies a Zap Check the Zap > Details ( i ) > Change History OR If a human modifies elements in an App that are relied up by the Zap Check the history logs of changes in the app (if available) TIP: When in doubt, test it out!
My app csvgetter.com allows you to easily create an export link for an Airtable base. The link is really useful in Zapier because you can specify loads of different data formats CSV, JSON etc. just by changing the parameter. - you can also use parameters to filter and change the filename. All explained on the docs. This demo is no longer than 5 minutes:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4EzGF3mUbiA
This article is for you if:you’re curious about how to build a private app using the Zapier platform you’d like to create a custom “form catcher” instead of using Webhooks by Zapier you use Elementor forms and would like a more customizable way to send submissions to Zapier The ChallengeOur Webhooks by Zapier app is perfectly capable of capturing form submissions from apps like Elementor. In most cases, it’s probably fine to use that, but there are a few of advantages to creating a private app on the Zapier developer platform:You can name it something more memorable, which helps if you’re on a team/company plan and multiple people need to build Zaps like this. If you’re building for clients, it’s more obvious to use something they’d naturally search for, rather than Webhooks by Zapier. You can add some detailed instructions in the trigger, meaning you can provide details specific to that particular use case.The Quick OverviewIf a bulleted list is all you need, we’ve got you covered (it
What happens when you go on vacation but all your collaboration tools keep running and expect input from you? How do you escape from the stress of notification floods? We feel that there’s a lot to do in terms of integrating productivity applications to shut them down or silence them when we decide that we need to rest. And it’s not just about the notifications, but about having simple processes that can deflect work to a colleague or warn customers that you can’t answer in time, just this one time.Which productivity apps would you like to put behind an Out of Office assistant? Task managers like Asana, trello, or monday.com? Marketing and sales platforms like HubSpot or Salesforce? We’re actively collecting feedback to understand this pain point better and help the Zapier community.About meHi there! I’m the product owner for Out of Office Assistant for Jira cloud.
