What is Zapier?
Zapier is a third-party application that provides the technology to easily integrate data between web apps or applications with web based integration points. Zapier calls this configuration a “Zap”. Every individual form, application or endpoint requires a unique “Zap” to be configured. “Zaps” consist of Triggers and Actions. When a “Trigger” initiates the event, Zapier will automatically post the data into Captorra with an “Action”. To learn more about “What is Zapier” you can read more here.
Using Zapier you are able to post Form Submissions from such apps as; Formstack, Facebook Pages, Gravity Forms and Unbounce; to Captorra.
Below is a step-by-step guide for integrating an app with Captorra. This guide assumes you have a Zapier account and working knowledge of the app you are planning to integrate with Captorra. For this example, we will integrate a Cognito Forms form with Captorra.
The following steps will setup the 'Action' step of the 'Zap'. These steps will be the same no matter what app you choose to integrate with Captorra.
11. Enter the below code into the 'Data' section
Note: The "CaptorraId" will be unique to the firm you are the posting to and the "Referrer" unique to your posting group. Both can be provided from Captorra support. The above data structure is format sensitive.
For this example, we are only capturing and posting basic form fields. Additional fields types are available to post. These fields and other information can be found in our Captorra API Posting Instructions.
12. Place your cursor between the empty double quotes next to "FirstName". Then click the button in the top right corner of the Data text box. Then drop the menu that appears select the field that maps to "First Name" on your form.
Completing the above step correctly will add a 'slug' to where ever your cursor was placed. This 'slug' represents the data that will be submit to Captorra when a entry is submit from your form. Repeat this process for each field you would like to post to Captorra. The end result should look like below.
