What is a Zapier integration?
A Zapier integration or “zap” is basically an automated task that runs over and over again between two online apps. A zap consists of a trigger and an action. “When this happens (Trigger), do something (Action).”
Once you have created your zap(s), Zapier will check your trigger every few minutes. If the zap is triggered, Zapier will automatically perform the action.

Zapier integrations are DIY (Do it yourself)
We won’t be able to set up Zapier integrations for you. But, if you’re having trouble with a Zapier integration, just reach out, tell us what you’re trying to do, what’s going wrong, what app you’re working with, and what’s the error you’re seeing. We may ask for your Zapier login details so we can take a look and offer advice. Just ask! It's very important that you also contact the support team at the other software you’re trying to integrate with. You’re coordinating between a few different companies (and probably a developer, too), so understand that this all takes time, testing, and patience.
