For this month, the team is proud to announce a new integration partnership with Zapier. With thousands of apps in its roster, Zapier is the premier provider of business workflows that span multiple applications and can automate your entire workday.
You can access the Zapier app right now in our App Directory.
How does the Zapier app work?
Zapier is used by creating “Zaps” which are like recipes where you pick a trigger app and then set up multiple action steps, that will be called upon every time something new happens in your trigger app.
One of these action steps is now to create an Adaptive Card in Digital Assistant. Basically you can name your Card whatever is suitable based on your trigger app, i.e. New contacts in Hubspot and then the Assistant will automatically generate a list on your Board that contains each Zap it receives.
Filling this Card with life, is super easy as Zapier let’s you populate the title, description, picture or link of your list with data from the trigger app.
Once your Zap is setup, the Card will then automatically appear in your Board as an Adaptive Card showing the details exactly as you set them up in the Zapier Editor.
Even better, this Adaptive Card made with Zapier can be simply edited using the Adaptive Card Designer in Digital Assistant. Just click the three dots in the top right-hand corner of the card and hit Designer.
This will open the standard Adaptive Card in the Designer, where you can make more changes to the layout and insert even more data from the Zap drawing from the Sample Data Editor area that shows you the data as it has been received by the Assistant.
So this is the best way to make your own Adaptive Cards with any of the 4000+ apps Zapier is listing in its apps list.
