Are there any plans to offer some intro to or overview of how to use this? And/or maybe a new forum section where the Zaps can be shared, etc?
Yep. Our documentation is in the works. Sorry we didn't have that out with the release, but we'll hopefully have that ready when we get out of public beta.
Great looking forward to it.
When I go to Zapier i only see 4 triggers (contact/booking created/updated) for OR. Is this correct? If so, any plans to expand the number of triggers?
We don't have immediate plans for more, but feel free to suggest ones that you would find useful in our Feature Request forum.
Joel - OK. But, not being a ZAP expert, I'm not sure what to ask for. What I was trying to do, initially, is automate something I currently do manually.
1 - when a guest checks out I have a trigger to send me a msg if there is a gap of more than 2 nights to turn the HVAC off. I have to go to the ecobee app and do it manually.
2 - I have a tag if the guest has paid for pool heating or cooling. A day before a guest arrives I have a trigger to send me a msg to turn on the heat/cool. I have to go into the aqualink app and set this up.
Both the ecobee and aqualink apps work with Alexa.
So, I wanted to try and create zaps for this. So should I request that a trigger runs a Zap (is this even possible?) or request that something is exposed on check-in and check-out with days before after?
Just not really sure how to articulate my needs.
I can't think of a way to trigger a Zap "if there is a gap of more than 2 nights". We do not currently support OwnerRez triggers directly to Zap.
This should be doable with a delayed Zap I think. Booking Create and Booking Update triggers include the arrival day, so you could use that to schedule a future action (Zapier delay action?) which turns on the pool heat.
