Export data from Dovetail with Triggers

Last updated January 21, 20191 minute read

Zapier lets you connect apps together and move data around using automated workflows called Zaps. Our Zapier integration has five Triggers and three Actions to help you move data between Dovetail and other apps you use.

Create a Zapier account

The first thing is to create a Zapier account, if you don’t have one already. Sign up for a free account at, then click Make a Zap! in the top right corner to get started creating your first Zap.

Choose Dovetail as the Trigger App

Since we’ll be using Dovetail as the source for data, in the search input for Choose a Trigger App, type Dovetail and choose it from the list.

Choose the Trigger to use

Dovetail supports five Triggers. Choose the Trigger you’d like to use, then click Save + Continue. For example, if you choose the ‘New Note’ Trigger, your workflow will run every time a new note is created in the project you select.

Authorize Dovetail

After you’ve configured the trigger, the next step is to choose the Action App and authorize Dovetail.

This time, search for Dovetail in the dropdown, click Connect an Account, and then click Approve in the popup window that appears. Test the connection, then click Save + Continue to move on.

Set up your Action App

Once you’ve finished authorizing Dovetail and choosing your Trigger, you’ll be able to set up your Action App. This is the app you want to connect to Dovetail. With an Action App, you could save Dovetail insights as Trello cards, or back notes up to a Google Sheet.

Zapier supports 1,000+ apps. Check out their directory and search for the apps you use.
