Here are some answers to common questions we get about how AI works

What is an activity?

Every time your bot runs a behavior or instant action, we count that as an activity. Each run counts as one activity, no matter how many steps you use in the run. You can run up to 400 activities per month on a free plan, or up to 1,500  on a Premium plan. If you need more activities, let's talk.

How are activities counted for Zapier Team accounts?

If you have a Team account on Zapier, your team shares a pool of Central activities. For example, if you upgrade to a Premium plan for Central, you can run up to 1,500 activities across all the bots your team creates.

Can I use Central with my Zapier Enterprise account?

Not out of the box. Central doesn't currently support app and action restrictions that may be in place on an Enterprise account. If you’re on an Enterprise plan and would like to use Central, please reach out to us.

How do I improve the reliability of AI bots?

You can improve your bot's reliability by following a few of our tips for writing an effective AI prompt:

  • Include helpful information upfront

  • Provide examples

  • Define the expected format and length of response

  • Give bots a role

Why don’t I get the same outcome from AI every time?

That’s because of non-determinism. That’s the fancy term describing why AI bots will reply with different, but likely similar, answers to the same question. It’s a feature that’s core to Large Language Models (LLMs), and what makes LLMs different from computers, which will do the same thing every single time. It’s not a bug, it’s a feature!

What app actions can bots perform on my behalf?

Central bots can only take actions in the apps you’ve connected and use the triggers and actions you’ve set up. When configuring a behavior trigger or action field in Central, you can have the bot always use the same value, pick from a specific set of values, have it guess the value, or not set any value. To provide additional control, you can add more details to your behavior instructions. For example, if you want your bot to always send a direct message to you in Slack, select yourself in the "To username" field but leave the "Message" field "Have AI generate a value for this field" so your bot can send a custom message every time.
