Update to the latest app version in Zaps

Zapier will attempt to automatically update your Zaps to the latest version when an app is updated. When Zapier can't update your Zaps, existing steps can continue to use the app's previous versions, but it will no longer be supported or available for new steps. The app version may also get deprecated. Once the deprecation date has been reached, Zaps that still use the version will be paused.

Zapier is migrating apps built with a legacy version of the Zapier Platform. Learn more about this update.

 

Switching between app versions

If you use public or private apps and have been granted access to multiple app versions, you can switch between them. Otherwise, you can update, but not switch back once you have published the draft.

For Enterprise plan users experiencing issues after publishing an app version update, use version rollback to revert changes.

 

1. How to identify if there is a new app version available

Within the Zap editor for your Zap:

  • In the top right, click Edit Zap.
