Looking to design complex web forms for Zapier integration? Look no further, we want to show you how easy it can be.
Previously, we’ve described how you can use Plumsail Public Web Forms with Microsoft Flow. In our latest update, we’ve added integration with another popular platform — Zapier. Just like MS Flow, it offers automation of workflows and integration of countless apps.
The process is even simpler with Zapier, than it is with Flow. You’ll need to:
- Create Plumsail Account
- Download our public form designer
- Design a form for web
- Configure a workflow (Zap)
- Add form data to Google Calendar (Example)
We’ll go through each step in detail. You can also read more about the process on our site as well.
Create Plumsail Account
First step is to create a Plumsail Account where all your forms would be stored. It can be done by following this link.
This account will be used when you add our application in Zapier.
Download our public form designer
Once inside the account, you will find a download link for the designer, and a brief instruction on how to create Public Web Forms.
Once the designer is installed, login to your Plumsail Account in it.
Design a Form for web
In this example, we’ll use a hotel Booking Form. You can download this template and customize it for your needs from our site.
Configure a workflow (Zap)
