Zapier Automation Settings
Kiosk Pro Enterprise's Zapier integration allows you to pass information to other web apps using Zapier. Zapier is a service which connects hundreds of popular web apps, including Google Sheets, MailChimp, and Salesforce, among others.
To use our Zapier integration, you’ll need to sign up with Zapier.
To create a webhook in your Zapier account:
- Open your Zapier dashboard and click ‘Make a Zap!’.
- Click into the search bar and type ‘webhook’, then select ‘Webhooks by Zapier’ from the filtered results.
- Click ‘Catch Hook’ and then ‘Save + Continue’.
- Leave the ‘Pick off a Child Key’ field empty and click ‘Continue’.
- Copy the webhook shown.
Inside Zapier, calls to the webhook act as a trigger, which can be used to start an action in another app. For example, you could pass a visitor’s contact information to add as a new subscriber to an email list in HubSpot or pass that same information to Gmail to trigger a customized email message to that visitor.
The call is formatted as
kp_Zapier_sendNotificationToZap(webhookURL, data, callback);. More information and sample code is available here.
Pending Zapier Calls
While the device is offline and Kiosk Pro is unable to send calls to Zapier immediately, the app will store calls locally in a queue, which can be viewed as a list in this setting.
This queue will send once the device has re-connected to the internet. Pending calls will only be processed while the kiosk presentation is running, and will not update while inside the settings menu.
This history log shows the last 50 Zapier calls sent, allowing you to quickly see the result of a call and pinpoint any problems.
The table can be exported to a .csv file into the Kiosk Pro documents folder on the iPad by selecting ‘Export’ from the top right corner. Instructions on how to retrieve this file are available here.
Added in 7.7 version.
