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. It’s a plugin that allows to A) automatically reassign work away from users who are out of the office to colleagues who ar
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!
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…

Hey Zapier community!We all love Zapier ❤️! It's like the Swiss Army knife for automating tasks.There were times when I wished for additional actions that weren't there, and I didn't want to dive into the rabbit hole of complex workflows or coding.That is why I created Tuulio, a Zapier companion app that adds ready-to-use automation actions that are currently lacking in the Zapier toolset.Let me show you how it solved a problem!Use case: Automation workflow for delivering tax receiptsProblem: The tax receipt's numerical amount should be reported in written lettersSolution: Tuulio has an automation action that takes a number and converts it to textLet’s be honest, Tuulio isn't a magic wand yet, but if you're not a coding guru, it can help you get things done.I have a gift for all Zapier friends 🎁! A free 1-year license for Tuulio with all the updates.Use the following code: ZAPIERFRIENDShttps://tuulio.com/Feel free to talk with me and let me know if there are any other automation actio
I noticed that Zapier Tables doesn’t have an option for getting a table record by ID. This was throwing a wrench in my plans for my use-case. Use-case: Have a dynamic segment of an email that constantly rotates between different blog posts to recommend to readers, without having to update it manually. I created a table with my list of blog posts, with their name and link. To get a random record from the table, I use a search to return all the records as line items, then use a formatter step to pick a random line item. I pick the record ID in order to be able to get the entire record. Then, to get the record, I use the “update record” step which requires an ID. I don’t fill out any of the fields to update. They don’t overwrite data when they’re empty, so all it does is return the entire record. I then update an RSS feed with only 1 item with the info from the record. Here’s a quick video overview of the workaround:
⚠️ 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!
How to Aggregate Array Line Items after Looping Iterations Contributed by: Troy Tessalone - Automation Ace - Certified Zapier Expert AboutLooping an array of line items is one thing in a Zap, but aggregating an array of line items is another in a Zap.
