Zap Action

Zapier works in trigger -> action pairs. The action specifies what to do with the retrieved data. There is a large number of apps to choose from, but for the sake of this example, we are going to learn how how to setup up a Google Sheets Action. 

Click on the Add New Step link or click on the Add a Step button displayed on the left side of the screen. 

After clicking that link the next step is to choose an Action App. I am selecting Google Sheets here, but you can select any app you want.

Once you selected the appropriate app, it will prompt you to select an action. 

Here I want to create a new row, so I selected the “Create Spreadsheet Row” action.

Once you click on “Save + Continue” it will ask for login details on the next screen. 

This step may vary based on the app and action you've selected. Once you configure your login details with the specific app click “Save + Continue”.

It's now time to set up the relation between your action and trigger. 

Here I selected the spreadsheet in which I want to insert data and then selected a work sheet. I have three columns in my spreadsheet thus all the columns auto populate in the APP form.

Once you click on the small icon next to the fields, you will be able to see all the data you have received from Groundhogg. 

You can select the appropriate fields from your Groundhogg sample data to map the data to your spreadsheet columns.

After mapping all the fields click on “Continue” and you will be prompted to test this action.

Click on “Test” and it will insert dummy data retrieved from the Groundhogg sample to your spreed sheet. If the test is successful click Finish. 

Now it's time to name your Zap, give it a nice name and turn it on by toggling the power button. 

Awesome! You’ve created your first Zap using Groundhogg and Google Sheets. 

Now that you have a basic idea of how it works, you can explore more than 1,000 apps on Zapier and integrate them with Groundhogg.
