Share a template of your Zap

You can share a copy of your Zap as a template so anyone with the link can use it. The template is a basic outline of each step in your Zap, with apps and events for your trigger and actions pre-populated. When you share your template with other users, they can then connect their own accounts and fill in each step.

You have a Zap that triggers whenever you receive a new email with an attachment from Gmail, then uploads the attachment to Dropbox. You can share a copy of the Zap so others can use the Zap with their own Gmail and Dropbox accounts.

Tip

If your account is on a Team or Enterprise plan, you can share your Zap with other members of your account so they can collaborate with you.
