Configuring a Zap

Zap is an integration between two or more services, which runs automatically on the Zapier platform.

Configuring a Zap is a pretty straightforward process. On-screen instructions provide assistance. To get started, you can use one of the Zap templates. Using a template is typically quicker than hand-crafting your Zap from scratch.

 

Manual configuration

If needed, more detailed instructions for configuration steps are below.

From your Zapier Dashboard, create a new Zap by clicking the Make a Zap button.
