For the past couple months, Zapier has been our most highly requested platform integration, and we’re excited to announce it’s up and ready for your use! 

What is Zapier?

For those of you who aren’t too familiar with the software, Zapier is a tool that lets you automate actions between different web applications.

You can now, for instance, get a text message every time a new student enrolls in your course or set up an automatic email to be sent out when a student completes your course. You can automate actions on over 500+ different web apps based on actions that occur in your Thinkific courses. The possibilities are endless!

Thanks to @Zapier you can automate your work and link your Thinkific courses to 500+ applications Click To Tweet

How does it work?

An integration between two apps is called a Zap, and a Zap is made up of a ‘Trigger’ and an ‘Action’. Whenever the trigger happens in one app, Zapier will automatically perform the action in another app.

Why use Zapier

Using Zapier can save you time, keep you organized, and help you better manage your students. Below are a couple of different zaps you can set up for your Thinkific course.
