Zapier is a separate and distinct software platform that allows you to move data from one application to another. Zapier has a robust set of applications to pull data from (including Eventsquid) and send data to. The many tools available allow you to create integrations from simple to the complex.
What you'll need
- A Zapier account (they have free and paid plans). Visit Zapier.com
- Access to Eventsquid's Zapier Trigger App (private to Eventsquid clients). After you create your Zapier account, click here
- Your organization API Key from Eventsquid
- Your event ID from Eventsquid
- A test registration on your event (for field mapping)
Eventsquid Organization API Key
From your main dashboard, click the MANAGE ORGANIZATION tab and click the API Setting block. Click "Launch the Control Center & Docs"
To the far right of your Admin Users, you will see API Keys. If you don't see any, just check the box to the left of the user and check off access controls. Copy the key you'd like to use for Zapier.
Eventsquid Event ID
Your Event ID is found to the left of your event on your EVENT DASHBOARD
For the event you want to use within your Zapier integration, make sure you create a test registration (or a least have a registration within the last 24 hours).
Creating Your Zap
In this example, we will create a Zap that will take new registrations from Eventsquid and adds to a Google Sheet (spreadsheet). While this Zap is functional, it doesn't represent all of the particulars you will have to consider, especially as it pertains to the receiving application. Eventsquid can help with Eventsquid's triggers but not other items within Zapier or receiving applications.
1. Click Create Zap
2. Give your Zap a name and type in Eventsquid for the App Event under Trigger.
3. Choose your Trigger Event.
4. Connect your Eventsquid account
5. Enter your Event ID
6. Test your trigger. This will pull in your test or current registration.
7. Setup your Action. This is a simple example where data will flow directly into Google Sheets. There are many options and filters available in Zapier to create more complex integrations.
The following is to illustrate basic steps for the Zapier "Action" which is the receiving application in this case.
Choosing the application and action
This step is to map Eventsquid data fields to the receiving app data fields. In this example, we are mapping Eventsquid registrant fields to Google Sheet columns.
Once the mapping is complete, you should test your action.
Once fully tested, you can turn on your Zap. How often your Zap runs is based on your Zapier subscription plan.
To round out our example, here is the Google Sheet with registrants from the Eventsquid event!
