Digest by Zapier lets you queue up items from triggers into a batch over time before sending them to an Action, like an email or Slack message. This means that instead of having a Zap run for every small event that may happen multiple times in a day, like a new message, you can have it trigger once a day, week, or month.
Each week I want to keep tabs of leads I receive from Facebook Lead Ads by email, but I don’t want to receive an email each time one comes in. In setting up a Digest, I can get one email per week with all my leads for that week. This cuts down on email notifications but ensures that I get all the information that I need.
You can use digests to collect data from a single trigger in one Zap, or you can have multiple Zaps send data to the same digest.
Limitations with Digest
There is a limit to how much content you can put in your Digest:
- The title of your Digest can only be 32 characters long.
- Your entire digest can have a maximum of 25,000 characters.
If you exceed either of these limits you'll see a message that says:
Secrets and keys can only be 32 chars in length, value must be smaller than 25000 bytes.
