Use button fields in Zapier Tables

Button fields in Zapier Tables allow you to trigger Zaps or run actions on a Zap from a table by clicking a button. Each button acts only on the record it’s related to.

Tip

Zapier tasks used by Tables do not count toward your account's task usage.

Trigger Zap

This type of button sends the specific record to a Zap as a trigger. 

  1. Click the plus sign formAdd icon that appears on the right side of a table.
  2. In the Field Type dropdown menu, select Button. Trigger Zap is the default button type.
  3. Enter a Default label for the button. 
  4. Click Create.
  5. Once the field is created, click the field name
  6. Select Create Zap. A pre-populated Zap will be created, and you can set up your Zap actions.

 

Continue Zap

This button sends an action to a Zap. You can define up to two different actions for the same field. 

  1. Click the plus sign formAdd icon button that appears on the right side of a table.
  2. In the Create Field sidebar, enter a name for the field.
  3. In the Field Type dropdown menu, select Button.
  4. In the Type of Button dropdown menu, select Continue Zap.
  5. Enter a Primary Button Label for the button. If using a second action, enter a Secondary Button Label.
  6. Once the field is created, click the field name
  7. Select Create Zap. A pre-populated Zap will be created. You can set up your Zap trigger and any other actions.

This type of button only becomes available once the Zap has been triggered, and all subsequent actions in the connected Zap will be held until the Continue Zap button is clicked.

 

Get information about button status

Button fields can show additional information about the button status through their label or by hovering over the button. 

 

Button requires setup

If you created a button field (either to trigger or continue a Zap) but did not set up a Zap for it, the button will show the Set up button label. You can click the label to start the Zap setup. Once the Zap is ready, the button will show the label you created.

 

Know when a button was last clicked

If you hover over an existing button, you can see information about who last clicked the button, along with the time and date. If the button was never clicked, you'll see the message "Not clicked yet" when hovering over it. The last clicked option will be highlighted if your Continue Zap button field has a secondary label. 

 

Continue button information

You can also find out if a record has continued a Zap already or if it was created before a Zap was active, by hovering over the specific button. 

 

Tip

You can also create Zaps that automatically add information to a table from another app or start a workflow when there's a new or updated record.
