PROOF: Delay For Less than 1 Minute with the Delay For Action Step
PROOF that it is indeed possible to delay a Zap for less than 1 minute using the Delay For action step! CreditsTroy Tessalone is a Certified Zapier Expert at Automation Ace. Don’t believe everything you read, and when in doubt, test it out! Screenshot below shows the Zap Run history with a timestamp created before and after 30 second delay.(Note: The time difference between the 2 timestamps shown is a bit longer than 30 seconds because of the time it takes to process the other Zap steps.) Notice below the field Time Delayed For (value) it states:Use a number (decimals are accepted). Note: minimum delay is one minute. How the Zap with a delay for less than 1 minute was tested…Created a Zap with these 5 steps.Step 1 triggers the Zap from a webhook.Step 2 creates a timestamp before the delay.Step 3 does a delay for .5 minutes (aka 30 seconds).Step 4 creates a timestamp after the delay.Step 5 posts a webhook with the timestamps before and after the delay.

Trigger your Zaps from Pipedrive with a button click
Hi All,All of you who work with Pipedrive are probably familiar with some difficulties and limitations on how you can trigger your Zaps from you deal, organization or person. As we know currently the options are either through webhooks, filters etc. which is often inefficient or you may receive multiple hooks for the same event.At the same time it may be very confusing for a user to understand if a Zap did / should have triggered, as they have no visibility on the rules you have set up.For this reason we have developed a free Pipedrive add-on which allows you to create custom buttons on any Pipedrive deal, person or organization. You can then listen on the button clicks in your Zap though a webhook. The add-on can be found in the Pipedrive marketplace: Pipedrive Marketplace - Third Party Apps & Integrations 1There’s also an example in our help documents how to set things up: https://help.zimple.io/books/zimple-oneclick-en/page/oneclick-zapierHope you enjoy it as much as we do!Vellu

Filters vs Paths vs Lookup Tables: A Visual Guide
Even the most seasoned Zapier user sometimes has a hard time deciding whether to use a filter with multiple Zaps, a single Zap with multiple paths, or a single Zap with a lookup table.We’re trying something a little different and providing a visual guide that hopefully helps to clarify when/why you might choose to use one over the other.Filters Paths Lookup Table Did This Help?FiltersIf you’re trying to have several different outcomes from your workflow, using multiple Zaps with a filter is one way to approach it.Click to enlarge.PathsSimilar to using multiple Zaps with a filter, Paths provide multiple outcomes using only one Zap.Click to enlarge.

AI-generated executive team meeting minutes with OpenAI, Loops, Code, Google Docs, and Slack
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

Jira Cloud issue edited trigger, how to reliably determine what was edited.
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
Airtable to CSV, JSON - generate links to be used with Zapier
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
[Advanced] Trigger Zaps instantly from Airtable buttons
Have you ever wanted to just hit a button in Airtable to trigger your workflow -- instantly? Learn how in 4 minutes.Most people set up Zaps that have a built-in Airtable trigger. The problem is — these are NOT “instant”. They can take up to 15 minutes to fire depending on your Zapier plan. That’s insane.This video shows you how to do it INSTANTLY, with webhooks.

How to Build a "Form Catcher" App Using Our Developer Platform
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

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

[New Integration] KV Store: Custom Storage app with instant triggers support!
Hello everyone,Back with another integration. This time inspired by this question and since this feature isn’t supported by the built-in Storage app, I decided to make a custom one.Introducing KV Store, a custom Storage integration that uses the Zapier Storage REST API behind the scenes and supports an instant trigger for when a value is created or updated!Currently, it only supports the following triggers and actions but I will be adding more in the future.Triggers: New or Updated Value Actions: Set Value Invite link: https://zapier.com/developer/public-invite/124310/02e450e492d94e83e4480ba74499384d/ ZAPIER SAYS: This is an invite-only integration, created by a dedicated member of the Zapier Community. It is not publicly available, nor is it created by Zapier directly. Any questions/suggestions should be addressed to the creator, as they would be the best person to act on the feedback Thanks@ikbelkirasan for your hard work and for sharing with the community!
