1. Introduction#

Zapier empowers apps to do together what they can’t on their own. With a bit of inspiration and creativity, your users can pull dozens of apps together into unique workflows to get more done with your app in far less time.

Zap Templates are readymade integrations or Zaps with the apps and core fields pre-selected, for publicly available Zapier integrations. In a few clicks, they help people discover a use case, connect apps, and turn on the Zap. Zap Templates are the fastest way for your users to automate workflows.

They’re also a great way to promote your app, as your Zap Templates are featured in:

  • Zapier’s App Directory
  • Zapier’s onboarding experience
  • In many of Zapier's 1,500+ integration partners' apps and sites

Zap Templates can also be featured inside your site and content to help your users start using Zapier integrations. The more Zap Templates you create and the more users they have, the more likely they are to be featured. This helps your Zapier integration gain popularity and rise the ranks of the Zapier Partner Program.

You can create Zap Templates for any public Zapier integration, or for any integration that has applied for public activation. Once you apply for public activation for your integration, you will need to build at least 10 Zap Templates in the Zap Template Creator to help people start using your integration.

Expected time to create a Zap Template: 10 minutes.
