Zapier launches Digest, so its apps can send their messages where you want
With Digest, messaging and alerts from all those apps become just more outputs that Zapier manages.
Workflow automator Zapier allows a user to link applications, so that, for instance, an email signup in one application gets automatically added to a customer relationship management system.
The company has integrated about 750 applications, but the chains of applications you have connected together are still talking to you separately — sending emails, notifications, alerts, and other updates.
This week, Zapier is trying to organize that cacophony of messages by launching a Digest by Zapier integrations. It allows you to send messaging, notifications, alerts and summaries from a specific application(s) to one place that you regularly check, like an email or the Slack collaborative messaging platform. Digests — which are text only — can be scheduled for daily, weekly, or monthly intervals, and you can only Digest apps that are in Zapier’s ecosystem.
