Why the "testing" Zap doesn't appear in Zapier Chrome Extension when testing my new push trigger?

Please help me to understand.

I would like to create a new zap with a New Push in Zapier Chrome extension. My Zapier extension is installed. When I am ready to test my trigger, I open a LinkedIn page, click on the Zapier Chrome Extension but the “testing Zap” is not visible… Without testing my new Trigger, I can’t set up my Zap correctly.


Thanks for your help !

Hi there @LaurentDB,

Welcome to the Community! 🎉

Before we go any further, I just wanted to check - have you had a chance to check out our Community post about using the Zapier Chrome Extension? It's a really helpful guide that goes into detail about how to use it. You can find it here:

Please give that a read, and let me know how it goes! 😊

Thanks @ken.a for your response. 

I probably checked all online information and I am still blocked. 

When I create a Zap and use the Chrome Extension as Trigger, I need to test the trigger of course:



So, I open the Zapier Chrome Extension on another page (like LinkedIn, but same situation in any webpages), but as you can see below, there is no “Testing Zap” in the extension.



A Push is found but the only information sent back to Zapier is the following:


As you can imagine, this is not helpful to receive Zapier URL and title.

Please let me know if you have any idea how to fix that !

Hey there, @LaurentDB! Thanks for sharing those extra details!

I did some digging and it appears you're running into a know bug with the Zapier Chrome extension where as you mentioned it’s no longer pulling in real samples. I've added you as an affected user to the bug report. While I don't have an ETA on a fix, this is the best way to stay informed as it ensures you'll be emailed at that time!
