How do I use Zapier?

Zapier is an amazing integration platform that allows you to integrate and automate your forms with over 2000+ apps.

Simply sign up and sign in to Zapier, and then choose an existing Zap template. You can also create a Zap of your own to connect your forms with Zapier apps of your choice.

There are two ways you can create zaps for Paperform:

  1. You can create Zaps via Paperform by navigating to your Form Editor.
  2. Zaps can also be created directly on Zapier.
