About Zapier

Zapier is an integration platform that lets you connect different web applications so they can share data. You can access web apps built by different companies and create automated workflows (Zaps) all by yourself! 💪

Why Zapier?

Zapier lets you easily navigate and build integrations yourself, even if you have limited technical know-how. Zapier does this by applying a user-friendly interface over the usually complex Application Programming Interface (API). Its step-by-step approach guides even the most inexperienced user to build out integrations in no time.

For example, Webex Events customers have successfully used Zapier to integrate data with the following 3rd parties:

  • Salesforce

  • Eventbrite

  • ActiveCampaign

  • Splash

  • Infusionsoft

  • Typeform

  • Google Sheets

How does Zapier work?

The simplest Zap requires two components - a trigger and an action. A trigger is something that happens on one site that causes an action on another. For example, you can create a Zap that copies attendee information to a Google Sheet when an attendee joins your event.

Don't worry if you are new to Zapier! They provide tons of excellent help and instructional content to get you up to speed quickly.
