How to connect Zapier to Autopilot
Note: the following process uses the "Add Contact" action as an example. The steps would be slightly different if you were using a different action, or a trigger.
2. Click "Make a Zap"
3. Choose a trigger app. For the sake of this example, let's pick a Wufoo form. But remember, you could pick any trigger you like here. Connect your Wufoo account and select the form you'd like to capture.
4. For the action app, choose Autopilot. Zapier will then ask you for your Autopilot key in order to connect your Autopilot account. You'll only need to do this the first time you setup a Zap with Autopilot. To get this key, login to Autopilot, and go to Settings, App Connections, then click Zapier:
Follow the steps to complete the Zap setup:
Note: a more in-depth break down of the above process will be available soon; Zapier recently changed their interface and this article is under construction.
Once you’ve turned the Zap on, Autopilot will automatically capture the form submissions and add them to the list you chose. If they’re a new contact (i.e. they don’t yet exist in Autopilot) they’ll be added as a new contact. If they’re an existing contact, the existing record will be updated with any new information in the form submission. Autopilot uses email address to determine if a contact is the same.
Create a Journey in Autopilot that is triggered when Zapier adds a contact
Now comes the fun part! You can add contacts that are added via your Zap to an Autopilot Journey. Learn how to create Journeys here.
For example, here’s a Journey that sends an email to people who submit a Wufoo form:
Remember to configure the List Trigger to add contacts that are added to the list in future:
