Zapier Overview

What is Zapier?

Zapier provides an integration platform that allows you to automate daily tasks that involve using two or more applications. By creating a "Zap", you can define an action and set it up to be repeated when certain triggers happen. An example of a "trigger" that you could set up in Zapier might be receiving an email in Gmail from a certain address, an "action" might include receiving an SMS notification. The Zap is therefore to receive an SMS notification every time you receive an email from a certain client in your Gmail account.

You can use Zapier to create connections, or zaps, between over 300 applications. Once you have created a zap, Zapier will continue to run it automatically. Through the control dashboard you can turn zaps on and off as you wish. You can also manage multiple accounts from one dashboard. Along with creating your own zaps, you can choose among a range of zaps created by the community of Zapier users.

Zapier makes creating integrations fast and easy

There's no secret to use Zapier, all you need to is to play with it, follow simple steps the interface tells you to or read the documentation (that's very abundant). The most recent thing I've learned was to use webhooks and use Zapier to get ou send information directly to apps API. It solves most of the issues I mentioned prior.

A little complicated, but so helpful when it works!

It's overall been really positive!

For When You Don't Have a Dev Team

Zapier has been a lifesaver in cases where Dev isn't available to create APIs to handle communications between two separate systems. Since it's a third-party app, it's security and number of platforms go a long way in convincing clients that it's a safe alternative to a full dev request and project.

Easy-to-Use Automation and Integration

Two things stand out for me:
1) Most support requests were met with what appeared to be an automated apology that they couldn't resolve my issue.
2) Zapier makes money based on the purchases of an allotment of monthly tasks. Some tasks lack flexibility requiring the use of more tasks than one might imagine. They are always happy to sell you more tasks, but requests for more robust functionality always seemed to be met with a shoulder shrug.

Zapier - Taking the extra steps out of extra steps.

Zapier has been a great product to use. The "Zaps" you can setup reply help save time. Right now I use it to automate our workflow for incoming marketing requests. Requests come in through a Google Form that synched the data input into a Google sheet form. Zapier takes all new data rows and parses them into an approval request e-mail, Trello board item, and a current project doc Google Sheet.

There's no secret to use Zapier, all you need to is to play with it, follow simple steps the interface tells you to or read the documentation (that's very abundant). The most recent thing I've learned was to use webhooks and use Zapier to get ou send information directly to apps API. It solves most of the issues I mentioned prior.

Pros

Zapier changed the way I deal with apps and tasks. Now everything I need to accomplish I ask myself: is it possible to use Zapier to make this easier or even totally automated? From simple things like sending happy birthday emails to my clients, to connecting a ERP app with Google Spreadsheets, there's hundreds of apps with thousands of possible combinations possible to make our lives easier.

Cons

Since they revamped the interface for creating and managing Zaps, there's not really anything that I don't like about Zapier. If worth mentioning something, it would be the missing actions, triggers or sometimes apps to integrate, but that's not Zapier's fault, because it depends of the apps making their services available on Zapier. Some apps like Wrike sell their own automating app, so they don't offer many choices inside Zapier. Others like RD Station Marketing lack of possibilities in their own API, so it's not possible to do much too.

It's overall been really positive!

Pros

Being able to integrate different software together, especially when I was managing hundreds of events a month. It was able to input new entries in a specific google calendar with my airtable bases. I've also used it with shipping software, and to automate other tasks. Most of the tasks I've set up, have gotten obsolete with new updates from software, but there's always something new to make more efficient.

Cons

It's a bit complicated to understand and then set up. Once you find the right combo, it's like magic. I do wish there was a way to trigger some of the integrations for past instances, but that would probably have its own issues.

If you've done csv imports into a spreadsheet, you can probably figure this out.

Zapier has been a lifesaver in cases where Dev isn't available to create APIs to handle communications between two separate systems. Since it's a third-party app, it's security and number of platforms go a long way in convincing clients that it's a safe alternative to a full dev request and project.

Pros

Zapier is the simplest way I've found to integrate two or more apps/platforms that don't normally speak to each other - for both myself and my clients. In the digital marketing space, this has been a game changer for clients that have disparate systems for each channel (i.e., one service for email, another for CRM, another for automation). In many cases, rather than having to get the dev team involved, Zapier becomes the easy fix. And, if Dev does have step in, they're not starting from scratch. They're generally just providing credentials needed for one of the steps to work.

Cons

Two items that could use some improvement:

1. When a test zap is completed successfully, the results of the test are shown by field. At times, these results can lean towards the more technical, nitty-gritty details, most of which you wouldn't see in the receiving platform when the actual zap is complete. It would be nice to see results that are more user-friendly and/or match the actual output that will be displayed within the receiving platform once a zap's complete.

2. This one is minor, but it would be really helpful if iCloud could be added as an available app to create zaps.

Zapier has a high number of platforms, apps, and sites available to choose from. One that's not included however that would be helpful is iCloud.

Two things stand out for me:

2) Zapier makes money based on the purchases of an allotment of monthly tasks. Some tasks lack flexibility requiring the use of more tasks than one might imagine. They are always happy to sell you more tasks, but requests for more robust functionality always seemed to be met with a shoulder shrug.

Pros

The feature that met our needs was the ability to respond to an http request in a variety of ways (email, save to spreadsheet being the most common). I am an experienced programmer with over 15 years experience and was happy to have a solution that did not require writing a lot of code. In general the ability to rapidly design and implement a solution for a specific requirement was a big time-saver.

Cons

Unfortunately, some common programming tasks such as creating and writing to a spreadsheet seemed in surmountable. In the end, I chose to manually create the worksheets I projected would be used to eliminate potentially complicated workarounds. Also, there is a limit on the number of levels of logical branching which caused some headaches such that I eventually migrated the functionality to Google Scripts which offers a richer feature-set despite the increase in coding.

Pros

Zapier added extra functionality to existing software and apps we were already onboarded with and saved us time by streamlining our workflow.

Cons

There is a bit of a learning curve between setting up automation and testing it, in some cases it's difficult to determine where the error is.
