How to Use Zapier to Connect Loomly with Other Apps

This article explains how to connect Loomly to Zapier and shares popular apps you can connect with Loomly to streamline your workflow.

Updated over a week ago

Zapier lets you connect Loomly to thousands of other web services.

Automated connections called Zaps, set up in minutes with no coding, can automate your day-to-day tasks and build workflows between apps that otherwise wouldn't be possible.

Each Zap has one app that acts as the Trigger, which is where your information comes from and causes one or more Actions in other apps. This is then where your data gets sent automatically.

Getting started with Zapier

Sign up for a free Zapier account and from there you can jump right in. To help you hit the ground running, here are some popular pre-made Zaps.
