I too just voted for Discourse here

NOTE:
We have a pretty big community here, and if we all spend few seconds to vote for Discourse, I’m sure we’ll be able to see Discourse at Zapier pretty soon.

Hey folks, so we are just starting to use discourse for our community and thought I would check to see if there is Zapier connector. Surprised to see there isn’t.

Turns out, we build custom connectors for zapier (as well as other platforms we are partnering with). In the past, our customers have required a need that isn’t supported by the Zapier connector for a service, so we build them a better version. We are now going to start monetizing those connectors for more advanced functionality that Zapier is not willing to invest the time to implement.

So…should we make a Discourse connector? Is this something that would only work for discourse users if made available for free? or is there a market for a paid version? We are working on one currently in beta that has both a free version and a more sophisticated paid version. Typically bulk support is on the paid version, for example.

If there is enough interest (especially willingness to pay (sorry, gotta pay bills sometimes…) ) then I would prioritize this one since Im really surprised it doesn’t exist and we’ll likely be needing it ourselves in near future.

Let me know if there is interest…

From the voting link, it sounds like Zapier expects the Discourse team to take the lead on this?

“Discourse has not yet built an integration on Zapier - add your request to be among the first to know when it’s available.”

Actually they (Zapier) are working on it! They pinged us for advice about it, but it is in progress!

I think that deserves a :tada:, and maybe even :fireworks:!

Whoa! I was afraid the original post that they were working on it was an April fools joke. Lol

Worth noting: the only trigger Zapier supports right now is “new post.” Not new user, new topic, etc. That’s pretty limited in functionality right now. It certainly doesn’t help me in my use case. Hopefully they add additional triggers soon before it goes out of beta.

ETA: Also, the only action it can take is creating a new post.
