All integration to 3rd party applications use the Zapier Integration platform.  This offers a safe and stable platform to transport data between applications.  The instructions below provide an introduction to using the Zapier Integration provided for QuoteCloud. 

If you require assistance activating this intregation suite, please email the QuoteCloud Help Centre at support@quotecloud.net

What is Zapier?

Zapier is an online automation tool that connects your favorite apps, such as Gmail, Slack, Mailchimp, and more. You can connect two or more apps to automate repetitive tasks without coding or relying on developers to build the integration. It's easy enough that anyone can build their own app workflows with just a few clicks.

For example, maybe you get a lot of email attachments in your Gmail account and you want to save them to Dropbox. Every time you get an attachment, you could open up the email, click the attachment, and then save it to Dropbox. Or you can have Zapier automate this for you, saving you time and effort.

 

Key points

  • Zapier is the glue that connects thousands of web apps.
  • Zaps are workflows that connect your apps, so they can work together.
  • Zaps start with a trigger—an event in one of your apps that kicks off your workflow.
  • Zaps automate tasks in the background, so you can focus on more important work.
