Updating Deprecated Apps in Zapier: A Step-by-Step Guide

Published on Feb 28th, 2024

When a favored app becomes deprecated on Zapier, navigating the update process is crucial to maintain workflow automation. Here’s how you can seamlessly update your zaps with the latest app versions:

Assess the Deprecation Warning

The very first step is to understand the warning's scope. Check the Zapier dashboard for any notifications regarding the deprecated app, and note down key information such as the deprecation date and recommended actions.

Find an Alternative or Updated App

Often, a newer version of the app or an alternative service is available. Search Zapier’s app directory for these options and read through the release notes to understand the changes.

Update Existing Zaps

Once you find a suitable replacement, go into each Zap that uses the deprecated app. Replace the outdated app with the new version by editing each step in the Zap where it's used.

Test Your Updated Zaps

After you’ve updated your Zaps, it’s vital to test them. Run your Zaps to ensure they work as expected with the new app version or alternative app.

Keep an Eye on App Updates

To avoid disruptions in the future, regularly monitor updates for apps used in your Zaps. Zapier’s update notifications can help keep you informed.

By following these steps, you can effectively handle app deprecations on Zapier and ensure your automated workflows continue running smoothly.
