Zapier meets Directual

April 23, 2020

Directual is now connected with 2000+ popular apps, including Mailchimp, Trello, Google products, Dropbox, Airtable and many others. This integration leverages the power of Directual even more!

What is Zapier?

Zapier is an integration hub. It means that you can use Zapier as a “single window” to connect your app with any service from Zapier catalogue. The integration is called ‘Zap’—that is a connection between two apps made of a trigger and an action. A trigger is an event in one system, and an action happens in the other.  For example, you got a new email in your Gmail account (this is a trigger) and you want to create a new card on Trello (this is an action). There are thousands of options for choosing triggers and actions. The fantastic news is that now you can choose Directual among them, both on trigger-side and on action-side!
