Dovetail Zapier App reference

See what sort of things you can do with our Zapier integration.

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


Import data to Dovetail with a Zapier Action

Actions help you get data into Dovetail from other apps. For example, using an Action, you could create notes from SurveyMonkey responses, save Twitter mentions as notes, or create notes from new Jira issues. Dovetail’s Zapier App has the following Action:

Any fields that have been added to notes will also be available as options to populate when creating a new note.


Export data from Dovetail with a Zapier Trigger

Triggers help you get data out of Dovetail and into other apps. For example, using a Trigger, you could post new published insights to a Slack room, save them in Trello, or embed them in a Confluence page. Dovetail’s Zapier App has the following Trigger:
