The GitHub Zapier integration helps you scale, work and build faster. Now, you can do more with it. Adding a New Review Request Trigger, you can kick off alerts when a review is requested. Notify your team, yourself or even a freelancer automatically. The update also adds a New Release Trigger so you can keep everyone in the know automatically.

Updating the New Issue Trigger, you can kick off workflows across all repos in an organization instead of having to specify a singular repo. You can now also track when issues are assigned specifically to you. Get notified in a Slack DM, by email or even SMS. You'll never miss a task again.

Seamless team communication and task management on autopilot.
