Hey there! Big news from Zapier – they’ve updated their plans and it’s something you might want to check out, especially if you’re already using their services. The cool part? Some of the features that used to eat into your task count are now free. This is a great improvement that could change the way you automate your workflows.

The Update in a Nutshell

Zapier has decided to make delay, filter, storage, and paths completely free in their new plans. This means these features won’t count towards your monthly tasks anymore. It’s a smart move that can help you save on costs or even enable you to add functionalities you were holding back on due to budget limits.

Focus on Filter, Formatter, and Paths

Let’s zero in on Filter, Formatter, and Paths, since these are the ones you might be using already:

  • Filter: This lets you set conditions to ensure your Zaps run exactly when you need them to. Super handy for streamlining operations.
  • Formatter: A bit of a Swiss Army knife, Formatter helps you transform your data to match your needs before moving it between apps.
  • Paths: Think of this as creating multiple outcomes from a single trigger, allowing for more complex, branched workflows.

The rest of the functions, while not detailed here, also play a significant role in streamlining your processes. Here’s the complete list of functions now available for free under the new plans:

  • Zapier Tables
  • Zapier Interfaces
  • Delay
  • Looping
  • Sub-Zap
  • Digest
  • Zapier Manager
  • Storage

Why This Matters for You

With these changes, you’re looking at potentially lower costs for your Zapier plan. Why? Because these key functions, which are crucial for creating efficient workflows, no longer count towards your task usage. This update not only saves you money but also opens up opportunities to make your automations even smarter without worrying about the extra cost.
