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
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.

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.

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
