Dovetail Zapier App reference

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


Actions help you get data into Dovetail from other apps. For example, you could create notes from SurveyMonkey responses, connect an NPS tool like Delighted or AskNicely and create a note for each NPS response, or add people via a Google Form.
