Hi @Davis homes,

Thank you for posting in the Zapier Community! Happy to help here.

From time to time, the connection will expire and we'll automatically reconnect in the background. For some reason, we weren't able to do so in this case.

It looks like your app's connection isn't working right now. This can happen if you've changed a password or if the app requires you reconnect your account.

I recommend checking all the app accounts used in that specific Zap and then try to reconnect those apps.

To reconnect your account, go to the Connected Accounts page and click the "Reconnect" button:

If we detect that your connection isn't working, we'll send you an email from with "Reconnect" in the subject line.

Hope this help! Please let me know how it goes.
