What is Zapier?

Zapier is a tool that helps you automate repetitive tasks between two or more apps—no code necessary. When an event happens in one app, Zapier can tell another app to perform (or do) a particular action.

What should/can I automate with Zapier?

  • Tasks you have to do frequently. Example: Sending a weekly reminder to your team to fill out a meeting agenda.

  • Anything where you have to move information from one app to another. Example: Adding tasks from a project management app into your personal to-do list app.

  • Tasks that don't require much thinking. Example: Copying the emails of event attendees to a spreadsheet.
