Digest - Features, Pricing, Alternatives, and More
Notifications were well intentioned. The goal was to bring you the information you cared about, as it happened. Convenient, right?
But somewhere along the way, notifications went from convenient to needy. All those pings, pop-ups and pokes jockey for your attention, invade your focus, and distract you from real work.
You should have the final say over when, where, and how you consume info from your web apps. Digest does just that. It lets you build custom summaries for the things you care about, delivered on your schedule.
Just pick the content you want us to gather from any Zapier-connected app, then set where and how often you want your digest delivered. We'll handle the rest.
Now you don't need to check your email, refresh a webpage, or flip your phone over every few minutes. You can switch off instant alerts, and rely on us for a regular summary of activity. Digest delivers recaps at a pace you set.
What Is Digest?
In a nutshell: Digest can aggregate anything for you. It helps you stay up to date by compiling content and then automatically delivering a summary to the platform of your choice at a time of your choosing.
Just plug in one of Zapier's 1300+ integrations and tell us what you want to stockpile. Digest collects that info, then assembles and ships a summary whenever you want to get it. We're giving you the power to gather data from your apps on a rolling basis, while you work on more important things.
You can make digests for new blog posts, messages, notes, sales, tasks, or whatever else. If it's in a web app, chances are we can grab it for you.
Getting set up doesn't require any complicated code, either—you just need to make a few choices.
- Pick something you want to aggregate, such as new blog posts, social media mentions, completed to-dos, or sales made.
- Customize exactly what's included in your digest. We only need to know what one entry looks like, and we'll copy that style for the rest.
- Set a schedule for when we should deliver your digest—on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis at your chosen time. We can also release a digest when it hits a certain number of entries.
- Tell us where to send your digest. Popular options include a Slack channel or a Gmail inbox.
Launched on Zapier August 4, 2016
Zapier combines Triggers (like "New Subscriber") and Actions (like "Append Entry and Schedule Digest") to complete an action in one app when a trigger occurs in another app. These combos—called "Zaps"—complete your tasks automatically.
The following Digest Triggers, Searches, and Actions are supported by Zapier:
Appends an entry to your digest, and schedules a time for it to be released.
(Advanced) Releases an existing digest that's set to "manual" frequency.
Looks up a digest, and returns its current content.
