⚑️ New Zapier Action: Create Content Hub Post

By popular demand, we've added the ability to send content from other sources to Content Hub. When you set up your Zap, just select the new 'Create Content Hub Post' Action, and your content will fill up your Content Hub automatically.

We love the ability to add content from Pocket, Feedly, and Slack, but there are loads of other options to explore.
