Zapier is essentially a GUI interface that allows user to use pre-built, or build your own, integrations to any system that has open APIs. This means that you can readily integrate QuickSchools with any other system, using Zapier as the go-between.
To facilitate this integration, you will need to first establish a link between Zapier and an external system (like QuickSchools). From there, you can create either a Trigger or an Action.
A Trigger is essentially an API call to an external system to search for new/updated records. This would be the event that would initiate a ZAP and facilitate an Action. (Example: Find new students in QuickSchools)
An Action would then be an event performed to PUSH data into an external system. This would essentially add/update the data. (Example: Add a new student into QuickSchools).
Zapier is useful to integrate other systems with QuickSchools, making the process of moving data from an external system to QuickSchools (or vice versa) really easy. The integration is described in more detail in our Support Article linked below:
This guide would cover the following required for the integration:
- Setting up Zapier
- Setting up API in QuickSchools
- Creating a Trigger
- Creating an Action
- Creating a Zap
