To keep your important data secure, you can enable Zap restrictions in your Company account that prevents users with member roles from publishing, turning off, or deleting a Zap without approval by an admin, super admin, or account owner.

 

Enable publishing restrictions 

  1. Go to the Members page in your account settings.
  2. In the Publishing restrictions section, click to toggle the switch on.

Enabling publishing restrictions

Once you enable publishing restrictions, when a member attempts to publish, turn off, or delete a Zap, a modal will appear prompting them to request approval first. They must provide a description of why they’re requesting the change. All admins, super admins, and account owners will receive an email notification of the request.

When enabled, publishing restrictions will apply to all future attempts to publish, turn off, or delete Zaps, including existing Zaps.
