Error: The app did not respond in-time
After attempting to test a Zap trigger or action, you may see an error that says:
We had trouble sending your test through. The app did not respond in-time. It may or may not have completed successfully.
This error can occur when your connected app takes too long to perform the requested task, such as searching for a record in a large database or uploading a large file.
- To fix this error in a trigger, try setting fields in your trigger step in order to return a smaller set of data.
- To fix this error in an action, you can try to break up a single step into multiple ones to send less data over at once.
