Although Flowster is the perfect tool for managing your company’s recurring processes, it’s obviously not the only tool you use.  You most likely have to switch between numerous apps on a daily basis, which can not only be inefficient, it can also be prone to human error.

This is why Zapier is such a fantastic match for Flowster.

With Zapier, you can connect Flowster to more than 1,000 other apps, including popular ones like:

  • Asana
  • Trello
  • Slack
  • HubSpot
  • Google Sheets
  • Salesforce
  • And many more!

Let’s look at an example

We have a workflow in Flowster that is run regularly to research leads for our business. A Virtual Assistant (VA) is responsible for entering potential email addresses into the workflow.

Next, we want these emails to be entered into a Google Sheet so someone on our sales team can reach out to this prospect.

So, we setup a Zap to automate this process:

We use the Task Completed Trigger in the Flowster app. The Flowster division, template, and task are selected.

Here we can see the email available to be used in the Zap:

We then setup the Google Sheets Create Spreadsheet Row Action:

Create Spreadsheet Row in Google Sheets

Note that in the “Email Address” field we selected the Email Widget that came from Flowster.

And after the Zap runs, we can see the email address in our Sheet:
