Solving Zapier's 'No Subscribers with Tag Found' Issue: A Step-by-Step Guide

Published on Feb 28th, 2024

If you're encountering the 'We had trouble finding a sample. No subscribers with tag found' error on Zapier, you're not alone. Many users experience this hiccup when setting up a Zap involving tagged subscribers, particularly when integrating with email marketing tools or CRM services. This guide will walk you through troubleshooting this issue to ensure your Zaps run smoothly.

Step 1: Verify Your Tags
Firstly, make sure the tag you're using exists in the source application (like your email marketing tool). If the tag is new or hasn't been applied to any subscribers, Zapier won't be able to find a sample.

Step 2: Check Subscriber Status
Confirm that there are active subscribers associated with the specific tag in question. Zapier may not be able to locate a sample if the tag is assigned to unsubscribed users or if the subscriber list is empty.

Step 3: Refresh Data in Zapier
Sometimes, the solution is as simple as refreshing the data Zapier pulls from the source app. Within the Zap setup, look for a button or option to 'Re-test' or 'Fetch fresh data' and see if this surface the necessary samples.

Step 4: Adjust Your Trigger Settings
Review the trigger settings in Zapier to ensure you're looking for the correct tag. It's possible to have a typo or to select the wrong tag from a dropdown menu inadvertently.

Step 5: Confirm API Access
Some applications require specific permissions for third-party tools like Zapier to access tagged data. Check your app's API access settings to verify that Zapier has permission to read your tags and subscribers.

Step 6: Contact Support
If you've tried these steps with no success, the issue may lie in a recent update or a deeper integration problem, which is where the app's support team can help. Reach out to Zapier's support for more personalized assistance.
