Hey guys!

If you're like me, you find yourself testing new zaps and zap ideas constantly.

One common problem though, if you are just trying to test an Action, is that you still need a trigger!

If you try and test your Action step without a trigger, you'll be hit with one of these:

You can set it up with any day and any time, so you don't have to waste any time figuring things out, also the test will always work, so it's a very quick fix.
