The Webhooks by Zapier trigger supports sending more than a single trigger event per webhook request. You can send an array of properly formed JSON objects and will trigger the Zapier once for each object in the array. It triggers the actions 3 times – once for every object in the array.
Silent mode: some apps want to receive an empty body. If you don’t want to receive content in the response from Zapier, select the Silent mode checkbox.
