In August 2017 we introduced beta access to task automation via Zapier. Our Zapier app has now gone public and allows you to connect your CMNTY Platform API with over 1,000 apps. We also added a new Give Points action.

Sounds Good, But What Is Zapier Task Automation?

Zapier is a tool that allows you to connect API of apps you use every day to automate tasks and save time. You can connect any of over 1,000+ integrated apps together to make your own automations. It’s quick and easy to set up – you don’t need to be a developer, anyone can make a Zap.

With Zapier, you can easily integrate your community platform with apps such as Slack, Facebook Lead Ads, Shopify, Google Sheets, Google Docs & many more.

Easy to Set Up

Connecting Zapier to your platform only takes a few steps and opens your community to numerous apps to customize operations.Zapier API Task Automation with CMNTY

Just create an API token for your Zapier account and connect them, then your platform is ready to take advantage of the power of Zapier.

Example Automations

Because Zapier can be connected to so many apps’ APIs, the possibilities of automating community tasks are literally endless. Here are a few examples to spark your imagination.

1. Send Survey Gizmo completes to your community

A lot of our clients are using surveys as screeners. It helps them to decide if people are a fit for their (private) community platform. By connecting, for example, Survey Gizmo to CMNTY Platform, you can invite people to your community once they’ve successfully completed your survey.

2. Invite Shopify customers to your community

Shopify is an easy and popular tool to create a web shop. By connecting Shopify to CMNTY Platform you can allow people access to your community after they did their first purchase in your web shop.

3. Sync your Mailchimp mailinglist with your community

Everbody is using Mailchimp, right? It’s a great tool for creating beautiful newsletters with just a couple of clicks. By connecting CMNTY Platform to Mailchimp you can automatically add people to your mailing lists when they have signed up for your community.

4. (Advanced) Setup Paid Memberships for your community

Setting up paid memberships is possible through a Stripe and a Jotform zap.

Our quick integrations can instantly turn your platform into a paid community where members pay a membership fee for entry. These integrations can be as powerful as instant emails upon new member registration to automatically inviting Salesforce leads to your platform.
