What is Zapier?
Zapier is a tool that helps you automate your repetitive tasks between two or more applications. Zapier will automatically trigger each application when a particular action happens within the platform. For example, you can use Zapier to update a Google Sheet every time an order is placed in one of your Company Stores. The best part? No coding knowledge required!
Supported Triggers and Actions
When you create your Zapier account, you will be prompted to create a Zap. A Zap is an automated workflow. When you set up a Zap, there is a trigger that alerts you when data changes or is updated within your store! This is when it gets exciting, because when a new trigger is created so are the actions that go along with it. An action causes the new or updated data from your Company Store to be pushed into your connected applications to perform a particular action based on you or your client’s preferences. ultimately saving you time and allowing you to create more efficient stores for your clients.
Here is a list of supported Triggers and Actions you can run with Zapier:
√ Order Created – An instant trigger that occurs when a new order is placed.
√ Order Updated – An instant trigger that occurs when an existing order is updated.
√ Cancel Order – A scheduled action that cancels an order by order number.
√ Updated Order – A scheduled action that updates an order by order number.
√ Get Order – A scheduled action that finds an order by order number.
√ Get User – A scheduled action that finds a user by ID.
√ Find orders – A scheduled action that searches orders.
