RSS Integrations

RSS Integration Details

Launched on Zapier March 2, 2012

Zapier combines Triggers (like "New Item in Feed") and Actions (like "Create Item in Feed") to complete an action in one app when a trigger occurs in another app. These combos—called "Zaps"—complete your tasks automatically.

The following RSS Triggers, Searches, and Actions are supported by Zapier:

New Item in Feed

Triggers on new RSS feed items.

New Items in Multiple Feeds

Triggers when there is a new item in any of the feeds being watched.

Create Item in Feed

Power your own Zapier RSS feed.
