About Zapier

Zapier is an intuitive integration platform that lets you connect different web applications so they can share data. Even if you have limited technical knowledge, the Zapier Application Programming Interface (API) user interface helps even the most inexperienced user build integrations in no time.

Webex Events customers have successfully used Zapier to integrate data with the following third 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.
