New Workable-Zapier integration saves time with automation

To make your hiring life a little easier we’ve teamed up with Zapier, a service which connects hundreds of apps, to let you automate some of the common tasks and actions you perform using Workable.

workable and zapier integration

In a nutshell, Zapier lets you create connections to push data from one app to another using triggers and actions. These connections are called “zaps.” This automates tasks that would normally require custom development, and entail a big investment in both time and money.

You can select a trigger (for instance “anytime you get a new candidate”) and an action (“send a personalized email through Gmail to each new applicant) to make a zap.

Here’s some simple zaps we’ve made:

Zapier integrates with more than 400 different web apps, which means most recruiters or hiring managers are bound to be able to find at least a few ways to use it to work smarter, not harder. To get started on your own zap, check out the full list on Zapbook.

Now do it yourself

  • Define a trigger: The first event that instigates another action. The trigger might be something like “Send a new email in Gmail” or “Create a new candidate in Workable.”
  • Define an action: An action is what happens after the trigger. It might be something like “Create a Contact in Google Contacts” or “Get a message in Slack.”
  • Ensure your Zap works and then you are set. Zapier will await the trigger and complete the actions you’ve set up.
