Schedule Integrations

Schedule Integration Details

Launched on Zapier January 18, 2013

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

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

Every Week

Triggers every week, just choose what day of the week.

Every Day

Triggers daily, just choose at what hour of time.

Every Month

Triggers every month, just choose what day of the month.

Every Hour

Triggers hourly.

  • Send webhook POST requests on a daily schedule

    If the app you're working with can receive HTTP POST requests, Zapier can create and send those requests on a daily schedule. With this integration, you choose a daily schedule and a POST URL, and Zapier will then send that request at the time that you pick.

    This integration can be customised to your app by specifying any header values or providing data in key-value pairs.

    How It Works

    1. Pick a time each day that you want to generate a POST request.
    2. Zapier generates and sends that POST request at that time every day.

    Use Zapier to automatically send monthly messages, reminders, tasks, or updates via Gmail. With this integration, you pick a monthly schedule and write a Gmail message, and Zapier will then send that email monthly on the day and time that you nominate.

    How It Works

    1. Pick a day and time each month that you want to generate the Gmail message.
    2. Zapier sends that Gmail message automatically on that day every month.

    If you use Evernote for recording daily notes, then use Zapier to schedule creating notes—or note outlines—automatically rather than setting them up manually every day. That way, you can automatically have a new note waiting for you to add info to in Evernote each day when you start your work.

    With this integration, you can choose a daily schedule, and Zapier will create a new note in Evernote at the time you select.

    How It Works

    1. Pick a time each day when you want to add a note.
    2. Zapier creates a note in an Evernote notebook on that time each day.

    Regular messaging builds engagement and loyalty, but you don't have to send all of those yourself. Let Zapier and OneSignal make sure you remind everyone of those scheduled events with this automation! After you've set it up, Zapier will send out your message every week at the time you indicate, never missing a beat even when you're busy with other work.

    Note: This integration will trigger every Monday at 10 am by default, but can be customized. This follows the time zone set for your Zapier account here

With this integration, you pick a daily schedule and write an email message, then Zapier will send that email daily at the time that you pick. There's so many ways you can use this integration—if you have any emails you need to send daily, you can automate them with this integration.

    How It Works

    1. Pick a time each day that you want to generate the Zapier email.
    2. Zapier sends that email automatically at that time each day.

  • Create a new Pipefy card every month

    Certain tasks happen every month, like sorting out payroll, or reviews. Make sure you never miss a single one by having Zapier keep you on track with each one. This integration, once active, will trigger monthly at the chosen time and date, creating your templated Pipefy card with the details you need to follow up with those regular chores.

    How this scheduled Pipefy integration works

    1. A new month goes by
    2. Zapier creates a new card on the selected pipe in Pipefy at the same time every month

  • Automatically Backup Your Digital Ocean Droplets Once a Week

    Make sure you never lose anything on your Digital Ocean Droplets by automatically backing them up. Instead of having to login to your dashboard and create a snapshot manually, Zapier can do it automatically for you on a schedule.

    How it Works

    With this automation, you'll pick the day of the week and time you want to backup your Digital Ocean Droplet, and select the Droplet you want backed up. And then, you'll never have to worry about running a backup again.

    Then, if you'd rather backup daily or monthly, you can login to your Zapier dashboard and customize the backup schedule as you want.

    What You Need:

    1. A Digital Ocean Droplet
    2. A Zapier account

    Got that? Then let's get started.

  • Send daily scheduled messages to a Chatfuel bot

    Have the same message you'd like to send to your community every day? Use Zapier to send any message you'd like to straight to your Chatfuel bot, and greet your community with a positive message at the same time every day.

    Note: This integration relies on previously set up Chatfuel bots. You'll need to run the /botkey command on your chosen bot to get the API key used to associate it with this Zap.

    How It Works

    2. Zapier sends it to your Chatfuel bot

    Have a list of to-dos that need to be accomplished every month? Use this Zap to automatically create to-do lists in Basecamp 3 at a certain time every month. That way, you don't have to worry about creating the list yourself. Instead, you can focus dividing up the to-dos and executing on them!
