To have a complete overview of Zapier, have a look at our video guide:
Our API allows teams to connect other software to folk through Zapier, to create, update or find people and companies.
Zapier automatically moves information between other applications you use every day and folk. It already supports thousands of other apps, such as Typeform, Calendly, Twitter, Docusign and many others.
Zapier lets you connect APP to 2,000+ other web services. Automated connections called Zaps, set up in minutes with no coding, can automate your day-to-day tasks and build workflows between apps that otherwise wouldn't be possible.
For example, you could be able to perform the following actions:
Add Typeform respondants answers to a group in folk
Add new Calendly meetings participants to a group in folk
Add new leads in Webflow to a group in folk
Add new followers on Twitter to a group in folk
Add new clients on Stripe to a group in folk
Add new signatories on Docusign to a group in folk
Add new community members on Discord to a group in folk
How to setup a Zapier integration?
Let’s go for an example where we connect Twitter to folk.
First start by creating a group, for example, named “Twitter followers” on folk. From this group page, just click on “Connect an integration”.
Each Zap has one app as the Trigger, where your information comes from and which causes one or more Actions in other apps, where your data gets sent automatically.
Then just select the trigger (what will trigger an automation to start)
Trigger Event: New follower
Connect your Twitter account to Zapier
And then setup the action associated (what the action that will result):
Action: Create Person
Connect your folk account using your API key (you can find it on your folk Settings: Go to the app.folk.app/settings and open the settings under the section "Integrations")
And that’s it! You can test your Zap before turning it on. And enjoy your life while all your followers are imported on folk.
Actions to be setup with Zapier
