What Is Zapier?
Zapier is an automation tool that lets you connect Nexudus to hundreds of other platforms to automate your worklflows.
For example a new signup on the Members Portal can trigger a subscription to one of your newsletters in Mailchimp.
How the Zapier Integration Works
You just need a Zapier account to get started. If you don't have a Zapier account yet, you can create one in a few clicks via their signup form.
Once you have your account with the adequate license, you can connect Zapier to Nexudus and start building your Zaps in a matter of minutes.
For more information, check out Integrating Zapier.
Instant and Polling Triggers
Nexudus offers two types of triggers in Zapier: instant and polling.
Instant triggers automatically send the relevant data to Zapier as a record is created, updated or deleted in Nexudus. Data is transfered from Nexudus to another platform in real-time. All instant triggers are labelled in the Trigger event drop-down list.
We recommend using instant triggers over polling ones if both are available for the same action.
Polling triggers automatically send the relevant record data when Zapier requests it. Zapier requests record data at set interval based on your Zapier plan. Intervals usually ranges between 2 minutes to 15 minutes. Nexudus can return up to 250 records every time Zapier requests data.
You can also filter your Zaps using most of the fields in a record for both instant and polling triggers.
For example, you want to trigger a Zap when an article is published, but only if the article is in the New Releases category.
Can I connect Nexudus to any platform through Zapier?
Any platform that's available in Zapier can be connected to Nexudus, but limitations will apply based on the Zap you're trying to build and the data needed to build the Zap.
