    Feature request: make "new submission" trigger Instant on Zapier

    Asked by loicsebe on December 14, 2016 at 03:27 PM



    I would love if you could turn the current Zapier trigger into an "Instant" trigger rather than use polling. It would be much easier to integrate Jotform with workflows using Zapier. 


    A lot of your form competitors actually have an instant trigger.

    Hi Loic,

    Can you please provide us with more details about your requested feature. It will help us provide clear details to the development team what the requested feature was about.

    Currently, the Zapier app integration is actually serve as an "instant" trigger already on form submissions. So I am not really sure yet how you meant about the zapier trigger.

    We will wait for your updated response.

    Hi Jonathan, 


    I have just double checked and Jotform trigger is not instant on Zapier. When a trigger is instant the app is marked as instant (w/ a grey background highlighted in yellow) righ before the Zap name. 

    You can see on the image below that the ZAP using Jotform as trigger does not show as "instant". 

    So currently all zaps triggerd by Jotform are only trigger every 5/10 minutes (depending on Zapier plan) rather than instantly. 


    I hope this clarify.
