Create an Apollo Zap in Zapier

Article author

Zapier uses Zaps to connect apps and services together. Every Zap includes a trigger step and at least one action step. A trigger is an event that kick-starts a Zap. An action is an event that a Zap carries out. When you turn a Zap on and a trigger event takes place, Zapier automatically completes the related action steps for you.

Apollo-Based Events

For more information about the triggers and actions that you can use to connect Apollo with Zapier-supported apps, refer to the "Zapier Integration Overview" article.

Apollo integrates with all Zapier-supported apps including Slack, Google Sheets, Typeform, Pipedrive, Zoho CRM, among others. This means that you can connect with key web applications in your workflow and sync data between them.

Refer to the sections below to find out more about how to create Zaps for your Apollo account.
