What's your favorite Zap?

One of my favorite Zaps is also one of the most simple Zaps I have setup. I struggle to keep tabs on messages in Slack. If I don't respond immediately I often lose the message and the person asking me a question goes unanswered. That feels bad. So I setup a Zap to star messages in Slack and have it send me an email. Then I can respond to Slack messages at my leisure in an organized way.

This sounds like you should just ask people to email you instead of Slack!

You can also click the three dots that appear near every message and use the option to remind yourself of a message later. They also launched Saved items recently - that might be helpful too :)
