Respond to user feedback and bugs

For public integrations, Zapier’s Support team logs user requests and reported problems in Zapier’s issue tracker, that your team can see from the Bug & Feature Requests page in the Manage section.

Issues in Zapier Integration

Problems with your public integration, authentication and API calls will be logged as bug, while new functionality users request for your app integration will be logged as feature request. You have the ability to filter open bugs and feature requests to view issues by individual Trigger or Action.

1. Monitor issues reported

  • Whenever a new issue is added or updated, Zapier will log it in the Bugs & Feature Requests page of your app’s Developer Platform page.

  • Issue notifications are automatically sent to all confirmed Administrators and Collaborators on the integration team. If an Administrator or Collaborator is listed as Invitation Pending, they will need to accept the invite before they start to receive issue notifications.

  • Bug count is not as important as how many of your users are affected overall and what percentage of the app’s overall monthly active users that impacts. Past history on closing bugs doesn’t influence your app’s current health score.

  • Affected user counts on issues typically underrepresent the actual totals, as only a small portion of all users facing an issue take the time to contact Zapier Support.

2. Respond to issues in a timely manner

  • Reply to the Zapier team about the issue within the Bugs & Feature Requests page to keep communications consistent for both your team and ours. These issues and comments are not visible to affected users; and users will only be notified when an issue is verified as closed/resolved by Zapier Support.

  • Lowering your count of issues will help improve your integration’s health score and increase your tier in the Partner Program. The more you maintain a bug-free, quality integration, the more essential your product becomes to your users’ workflows. This sets you up to reduce churn, drive account upgrades, and increase customer lifetime value.

  • Regardless of the size of your integration’s user base, keeping the percent of monthly active users affected by open bugs under double figures (and ideally at 0) is recommended for a healthy integration.

  • Allocate ongoing resources in your team’s product roadmap for the maintenance of your Zapier integration to avoid surprise work or gaps in functionality. Consider a Zapier Expert to help you fix one-off bugs or maintain your integration.

3. Consider Zapier Issue Manager
