Export data from Dovetail with a Zapier Trigger

Automatically export data to other apps with our Zapier integration.

Zapier lets you connect apps together and move data around using automated workflows called Zaps. Our Zapier integration has three Triggers and one Action 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. Get started with 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.

Dovetail has three Triggers available:

  • New Insight – triggers when a new insight is published.
  • New Project – triggers when a new project is created.
  • Project Updated – triggers when a project is updated.

Choose one of these triggers, then click Save + Continue.

Authorize Dovetail

Search for Dovetail in the dropdown, click Connect an Account, and then click Approve Zapier in the popup window that appears.

Test the connection, then click Save + Continue to move on.

Edit Trigger options

Choose a project for your selected trigger, or leave the project field blank for this Zap to trigger for all projects in your workspace.

Set up your Action App

Once you’ve finished setting up the trigger, you can configure your Action App, which is where you want your data to go. With an Action App, you could save insights as Trello cards, or publish them in a Slack channel. Zapier has thousands of apps, so check out their directory and search for the apps you use.
