How to use our Zapier library

1. You'll need an active account in The Receptionist, Zapier, and any other apps you're integrating The Receptionist with via Zapier.

2. Once you've found a Zap you'd like to use on your account, click the blue 'Get The Zap' button. You'll be taken to a Zapier page that explains more about what the Zap does and the apps it integrates. Make sure you're logged into your Zapier account, then click 'Try this Zap'.

3. You'll go through the process of connecting your own accounts, including the locations and buttons you want to trigger the Zap. Filters and message content are set up for you in each template, but feel free to customize to your heart's content. It's your Zap now.

4. Zapier will ask your help to run a series of tests with the help of a recent visit in your Receptionist account. Check that the Zap is filtering the right information and sending any alerts correctly. Once you've completed the test, you can turn on your shiny new Zap.

5. Turn the Zap on and watch the integration work its magic. Now that you're a pro, browse through our Zap library for more time-saving templates, or start building your own. Happy Zapping!

Common Zapier & The Receptionist Questions

Zapier is an integration platform that makes it easy to connect software—no coding know-how required. Pass information between your web-based apps and have an event in one platform (like a check-in on The Receptionist) 'trigger' something on another app (like a Slack message to the guest's contact). Connect The Receptionist for iPad with any of the 2000+ available apps on Zapier by signing up for a Zapier account for your business!

Focus on making personal connections with visitors and not on tasks that can be automated
