NextAgency offers a wide variety of integrations to help you do more, more quickly, with automation. This includes making available to you our API and integration through the Zapier platform. This article describes how to connect NextAgency with other software platforms through Zapier.
Zapier makes it easy to move data between two software applications. We use workflows ("zaps") to help automatically move data between NextAgency and other software programs. For example, you can connect NextAgency to Calendly and automatically create a lead when someone sets-up an appointment with you.
There are literally hundreds of software platforms in the Zapier community. By automating repetitive tasks, we help you gain greater value from both NextAgency and other software you use. The result: you save time and money.
Here's how to automate your daily tasks in NextAgency with Zapier:
- Create a Zapier account if you don't already have one. (https://zapier.com/home).
- Request an invite to our Zapier integration. Simply click on the Help button at the bottom right of any page in NextAgency or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org stating your interest in integrating with Zapier. This must be done by an Administrative Broker or their designee. Our support team will send you the invitation.
