Zapier is a web service that let’s you connect web services. You can get data from a web service such as JotForm and sync it to over 100 other web services. The great thing about it is that once you setup the integration, it will keep working on the background.
Here are some possible use cases of Zapier-JotForm collaboration
- Send data from a lead generation form to a CRM or to your Asana todo inbox.
- Add entries on a reservation form to Google Calendar
- Create new tickets on a support app such as Zendesk
- Push new form entries to Campfire chat or to your AIM
- Automatically send a tweet when there is a new form entry
- Create invoice in Quickbooks or Freshbooks from new form entries
- Create a GitHub issue from a JotForm form
Zapier team is adding new integrations everyday. So, list of possibilities are limitless.
How to Create Your First Zap
1. Visit the JotForm’s page on Zapier:
2. Choose one of the apps listed on the right side. Let’s select Google Calendar.
3. Choose how you would like to integrate these two apps.
4. Click on the “Create this Zap” to finalize selection.
5. Complete the integration by giving access to Zapier from JotForm and the other web service.
6. Next, choose the form where you would like to get the data.
7. Choose which fields will be sent to the web service. Note that you must have at least one submission on your form for fields to show up here.
8. There are other options you can add but that’s pretty much all you need to complete. Scroll to the bottom and click on Enable and sync new data. (Migrating existing data is currently not available on Zapier but they plan to implement it soon.)
9. That’s all. You should now receive the data on the second web service when someone submits your form.
