One of the most customizable bots

What do you like best?

If you're familiar with the Zapier workflow, you're probably aware of the endless amount of actions you can trigger - with the only limitations being those set in place by the application or service Zapier is being integrated with. The slackbot integration is very customizable, with triggers available for most slack actions.

What do you dislike?

With a highly configurable product, configuration complexities can easily arise - complicating the use if you're not as familiar with certain triggers. Unless you have a dedicated integration team to manage the setup, I would recommend hiring someone for the project (depending on scope)

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you've got someone who's familiar with IFTTT, they'll understand the general flow of how the product triggers actions. For Zapier Bot (Zapbot) - the trigger automates various slack actions. Highly recommended if you're using Slack for team communication.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When using Zapier, we were able to configure notices for an entire team when changes to a schedule in Google Sheets were made, allowing for real time schedule management and notifications to allow for more flexible scheduling and staffing depending on volume.

The easiest and fastest way to integrate between SaaS products

What do you like best?

The simple approach to automating a flow that spans across multiple products, along with the fact that almost any modern SaaS product already has an integration with Zapier.

What do you dislike?

The price. This tool is rather expensive once you start to scale.

A colleague of mine thinks the tool is a bit too complex, which is true once you start looking at the need to filter or format certain data that you pass across applications. For me, this is seldom the case.

Branching isn't possible with Zapier - you can only run it in a single direction (straight lines of applications that you connect one to another).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it out. It works great.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ability to create automation sequences across multiple SaaS products that I am using.

By making use of Zapier, I've been able to get more done in my business.

Get notified about pretty much anything

What do you like best?

If there is an online platform you can't link Zapier bot up to now, that platform is probably pretty old and crappy. It can literally connect to anything worth connecting to and notify you about changes in real time.

What do you dislike?

Some of the alerts you can setup in Slack are not the prettiest things, but I think that's more down to Slack than Zapier.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The two main things we use it for are to keep the team up to date on new blog posts (with selected tweets for sharing on our work accounts) and for being notified when our clients have added new products to their inventories by syncing it up to Google Docs spreadsheets.

Very much for productivity freaks, moderately easy to use!

What do you like best?

Its been very functional for making regular reminders for people! With more experience using it, I can see myself making even more functional bots for my needs!

What do you dislike?

It has a high learning curve! The only way I was able to implement a functionality was through the help of a knowledgeable co-worker.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use the tutorials available on the website when first setting up your bots, and take advantage of bots others have built.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have a regular lab cleanup schedule in our lab that required sending reminders to people. We have replaced this by just maintaining a google calendar integrated through Zapier, and it is now completely automated.

The Zapier Bot has so many use cases

What do you like best?

For my purpose, I use the Zapier Bot in order to test our own Zapier integration. But we also use it for tons of other cases where we want notifications within Slack. It was quite easy for our team to create our own bot due to Zapier's help and guidance.

What do you dislike?

The setup and implementation was quite easy, so not much to dislike.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We realized many users like ourselves use Slack for their team communication. Building a Zapier bot was going to be ideal for our business and help out a lot of users that pay for our product.

Repetitive processes made easy.

What do you like best?

Customizable. The multi-step zaps. Supports MySQL.

What do you dislike?

Very less access for free users. expensive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are a startup and workforce is limited, then, this is of great use as redundant work can be automated thus, we can channel the workforce to do better technical work. As a person who hates even simple redundant tasks, I loved the product and found it to be of great use. Setting up the flow was very easy and it is useable on a wide range of apps. It makes it versatile. The downside though, free users cannot access much of its functions and the lowest paid plan offers less number of zaps. If the company is small, it might find the app expensive.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For the company, I worked in, we were developing a cloud-based billing application. We had to thus, test a lot of scenarios/flows. Most of the task is redundant. Thus, using Zapier helped us rid these repetitive tasks. It is integrable with a lot of apps, including the google set. The whole process of setting up a flow is easy as well and came be done by a beginner without much difficulty/guidance. It has saved us a lot of time and rid us of redundant work.
