DigitalOceanCreate Snapshot

Want to maintain regular droplet snapshots, but too busy to remember every day? Just activate this Zap and we'll make sure they happen, no matter what you're doing. Just indicate the time you'd like the scheduling automation to run and you'll be good to go, as a new snapshot of your Digital Ocean droplet will automatically be created daily for you from then on.

How It Works

  1. A new day passes
  2. Zapier automatically creates a Digital Ocean snapshot

About Schedule by Zapier


Schedule is a native Zapier app you can use for recurring tasks. Trigger an action every day of the month, every day of the week or every single day. You can also select the hour of the day. If you're a developer, this is similar to a crontab, cronjob or cron.
