[EXAMPLES] Zapier Tasks VS Make.com Operations (formerly Integromat) PurposeHelp explain the difference between Zapier Tasks in Zaps and Make.com Operations in Scenarios.Make.com was formerly Integromat. Zapier TasksHelp article to learn about Zapier Tasks: https://help.zapier.com/hc/en-us/articles/8496196837261 OverviewWhenever your Zap successfully completes an action, it counts as a task.Trigger steps do not count as tasks, but successful action steps do.You can see all the tasks your Zaps have attempted in Zap History. How Tasks are CountedThe following count as tasks when your Zap runs:Any successful action step. Any filter step that passes. Any time a path's rules pass. For Sub-Zaps, the Call a Sub-Zap action and the Return From a Sub-Zap action each use 1 task.NoteIf Should This Step Be Considered a "success" When Nothing Is Found? is selected in a search step, the search action will count as a task.Make OperationsHelp article from Make.com: https://www.make.com/en/help/scenario
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

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

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
Webhook action add reactions in Slack
Hi Community!I thought I would share here how to create a Zap that can add reactions to messages filtered through keywords using Filter and Webhook actions. The Zap can be more complex but for the example I made in 3 steps: Summary ViewStep 1: Trigger; I went ahead and used New Message Posted in Channel in SlackStep 2: Action; Here I selected the Filter action with the option to “Only continue if...” Step 3: Action; Here I went with Webhook by Zapier; Custom Request in Webhooks by Zapier Steps 1 and 2 are simple, so I will expand a bit more on Step 3 which for me was the trickiest part. Step 3 Details App & event: App: Webhooks by Zapier Event: Custom RequestStep Details: Method: POST URL: https://slack.com/api/reactions.add Data: channel=ChannelID&name=EmojiName&timestamp=MessageTs Unflatten: False Headers: Authorization: Bearer xoxb-your-personalized-slack-token Content-type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded Action Details Finally, here are a couple of links to reso

Instant Gmail (or Outlook email) Triggers
Triggering Zapier from an email can be an effective way to integrate with systems like Realtor.com, Venmo, Airbnb, or any other app that doesn’t have a Zapier integration yet. Often times, lead response time is critical and all of the Gmail Zapier triggers are scheduled (1-15 minute delay depending on your plan). This walk-though will show you how to set up Gmail forwarding to instantly trigger Zapier (bonus: since this solution uses Zapier Email Parser you may also be able to parse the email content at the same time)*The below guide walks you through how to set up a forwarder in your Gmail account. However, you can set up forwarding rules for all different types of mail clients and the premise of the guide is the same. Here are details on how you can set up forwarding rules with an Outlook account: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/use-rules-to-automatically-forward-messages-45aa9664-4911-4f96-9663-ece42816d746 Step 1: Create Your Parser account and Mailbox- Create a Parser

Your wishlist needed: Vacation management, out of office and auto responder integrations
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.

Task managers like Asana, trello, or monday.com? Marketing and sales platforms like HubSpot or Salesforce?

How to process a multi-file conversion result from ConvertAPI
The ConvertAPI app on Zapier is becoming highly popular, and many customers are extending their workflows using our service that offers a broad file type conversion support.It is super easy to set up and requires no development skills at all. However, there are some nuances that may be taken into consideration to take full advantage of our service. In this article we will explain how to process multiple files returned by the ConvertAPI conversion.Conversions that result in multiple filesSome conversion endpoints may return multiple files as a result of the conversion, and you may wonder how to process each file individually.Some common examples that return a file array as a conversion result would be:ZIP to EXTRACT PDF to PNG PDF to SPLIT DOCX to JPGAnd so on. Zapier aggregates such results into a single field joined by a comma delimiter. But worry not! There is a solution for iterating those files one by one. It involves a single step that is easy to set up and is completely free.Proc
