New App: Aggregate Anything with Digest by Zapier

Do you ever feel tormented by instant notifications? They're supposed to be helpful—but really, they just distract you from more important work.

We think you should have the final say over when, where, and how you consume info from your web apps. And that's why we built Digest, a brand-new tool that lets you compile custom summaries of your app data. We'll deliver those summaries to Slack, Gmail, or another app on your schedule—and (of course) it's all automatic.

Want to try it out? Here's a breakdown of the steps for setting up your first digest:

  1. Pick something you want to aggregate, such as new blog posts, social media mentions, completed to-dos, or sales made.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Tell us where to send your digest. Popular options include a Slack channel or a Gmail inbox.

How Digest Works With Zapier

Most Digest Zaps are made up of three parts: your trigger app, the Digest step, and the app where you want your digest delivered. One of these steps will sit between the app that's feeding your digest, and and the platform we'll send it to.


  • Append Entry and Schedule Digest: Adds an item to your digest, and schedules a time for it to be released. You can have a digest delivered on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.
  • Release Existing Digest: An advanced Action that should only be used when your Digest Zap is set to the "Manual" frequency. This Action lets you release a digest based on an unscheduled trigger—like a Slack command or a button-push in [Zapier's Google Chrome Extension.


  • Find Digest: Returns a digest in its current state, without clearing out the saved data. Great for getting progress reports throughout the day, week, or month.
