What is Zapier and How Does it Work with Vendasta?
Zapier serves as the middle layer that facilitates the integration between the Vendasta CRM and a multitude of third-party applications. Through Zapier, users can create automated workflows known as "Zaps," which trigger actions in one application based on predefined triggers or events in another application. This means that you can now effortlessly capture leads from your favorite third-party systems and funnel them directly into the Vendasta CRM, streamlining your lead management process.
Trigger Vendasta Automations with Zapier
In addition to capturing leads, the integration with Zapier also allows you to trigger automations within the Vendasta platform. This means that you can automate various tasks and processes within Vendasta based on events occurring in your third-party applications. For example, you can automatically create tasks, send follow-up emails, or update lead statuses in the Vendasta CRM in response to specific actions taken in your other systems.
By leveraging this functionality, you can further streamline your workflows, reduce manual intervention, and ensure consistency and efficiency across your operations. Whether it's automating lead nurturing campaigns, assigning tasks to team members, or updating customer records, Vendasta automations powered by Zapier offer endless possibilities for optimizing your business processes.

Getting Started: Setting Up Your Zap
To start capturing leads from third-party systems into the Vendasta CRM, follow these simple steps:
Connect Your Vendasta and Third-Party Accounts: Once logged into Zapier, navigate to the "Connected Accounts" section and connect your Vendasta CRM account along with the third-party application(s) you want to integrate. This typically involves providing authorization for Zapier to access your accounts.
Create Your Zap: After connecting your accounts, it's time to create your Zap. Start by selecting the third-party application as the trigger app and the Vendasta CRM as the action app. Define the trigger event that will initiate the action in the Vendasta CRM, such as a new lead being added in Salesforce or a new note created in Evernote.
Map Your Data: Zapier will guide you through the process of mapping the data fields from the trigger app to the corresponding fields in the Vendasta CRM. This ensures that the lead information is accurately captured and transferred between the two systems.
Test Your Zap: Before activating your Zap, it's essential to test it to ensure everything is functioning correctly. Zapier provides a testing feature that allows you to simulate the trigger event and verify that the data is successfully transferred to the Vendasta CRM.
Activate Your Zap: Once you're satisfied with the test results, activate your Zap to start automating the lead capture process. From this point onward, whenever the specified trigger event occurs in the third-party application, Zapier will automatically create a corresponding lead in the Vendasta CRM, saving you time and effort.
