April 1, 2022

At SmartSuite, we are constantly on the lookout for innovative solutions that can empower our users to enhance productivity and streamline their workflows. That's why we're thrilled to announce our latest integration with Zapier, a platform that enables users to automate tasks and seamlessly connect their favorite apps. In this blog post, we'll delve into how this integration with Zapier opens new avenues for efficiency and productivity for our users.

Zapier: Simplifying Workflows

Zapier's mission is to make work flow for everyone, and they achieve this by allowing users to build Zaps. A Zap is a combination of a trigger and one or more actions that automate your tasks. Imagine no longer having to wait for a developer to solve your team's problems. With Zapier, you can automate your work in minutes and start tackling your most significant challenges.

Here's how it works: a trigger initiates your automation. For example, when someone fills out a form on your website, that's the trigger. Actions are what your automation does when triggered. In this case, the action might be sending a message to your sales team. You can add as many actions as you need to create a customized workflow. It's that simple!

Connecting Over 6,000 Apps

Zapier supports a vast ecosystem of over 6,000 apps, allowing you to tame the chaos of managing multiple tools and turn them into efficient processes, all in one place. Whether you need to automate a straightforward task or build an entire automated system, Zapier provides the flexibility and versatility to make it happen.

Empowering Automation, Ensuring Security

SmartSuite's integration with Zapier empowers your team to automate tasks while maintaining the utmost security for sensitive company data. Rest easy knowing that every automation and data transfer is protected. Zapier not only offers stringent internal security controls but also conducts annual SOC 2 (type II) audits to ensure the highest level of data security.

You can easily access Zap activity logs in your Zap History, enabling you to troubleshoot issues and verify information with just a few clicks. This level of transparency and control ensures that your automations run smoothly and securely.

Key Features of Zapier

Zapier is renowned for its robust feature set, designed to simplify automation and streamline workflows. Here are some of the key features that make Zapier an indispensable tool for connecting apps and automating tasks:

  • Zaps - At the heart of Zapier are "Zaps," which are automated workflows connecting two or more apps. Each Zap comprises a trigger, representing an event in one app (e.g., receiving a new email in Gmail), and an action, defining what happens in another app (e.g., creating a new task in Trello). Zaps can be simple, with one trigger and one action, or complex, incorporating multiple triggers, actions, and filters.
  • Wide Range of Integrations - Zapier supports integrations with over 5,000 apps and services, including popular tools like Gmail, Slack, Trello, Salesforce, and many more. This extensive ecosystem enables you to connect nearly any app you use to any other app, allowing for seamless automation across different platforms.
  • Multi-step Zaps - Zapier goes beyond one-to-one integrations, offering multi-step Zaps that perform multiple actions in a sequence. For instance, you can create a Zap that automatically adds a new lead from a form to your CRM, sends a notification to your team, and schedules a follow-up call.
  • Filters and Conditions - Fine-tune your Zaps with filters to control when they run. For example, you can set up a Zap to trigger only for emails with specific subject lines or for tasks assigned to particular individuals. Conditional logic allows you to create Zaps that adapt based on specific conditions.
  • Scheduling - Zapier enables you to schedule Zaps to run at specific times or intervals. This is particularly useful for tasks that require periodic execution, such as sending weekly reports or data backups.
  • Data Manipulation - Zapier equips you with tools to manipulate data as it flows through your Zaps. You can format, clean up, and split data into separate records, ensuring that your information is structured precisely as needed.
  • User-Friendly Interface - Designed to be user-friendly, Zapier caters to individuals with no technical experience. Its visual interface simplifies the creation and management of Zaps, making automation accessible to a
