Last updated on Feb 09, 2024

What is Zapier Integration?

Zapier is an online automation tool that allows you to connect your favorite apps, such as Gmail, Slack, Mailchimp, Trainerize, Practice Better, Stripe, Dropbox, and more than 6,000 others. You can automate repetitive tasks with workflows known as Zaps, creating a more efficient work environment. Essentially, it connects your favorite apps, integrates them, and automates specific parts of your workflow.

Watch this 5-minute video below to learn how to connect Foodzilla to other apps via Zapier (such as Trainerize). In this video, we show you how to send meal plans from Foodzilla to your Trainerize clients.

To get started integrating Foodzilla with other apps on Zapier, go to Integrations from the left menu and enable Zapier, once that's done, you will get an API Key to use with Zapier to create your automation tasks. Visit this link to see what's possible.

Note: Zapier Integration is only available on Pro and Team plans.

How Does it Work?

  1. Create a Zap: A "Zap" is a blueprint for a task you want to do over and over. It consists of a "Trigger" and an "Action". A Trigger is an event in an app that starts the Zap. Once set up, the process is automated.

  2. Select Apps: Choose the apps you wish to integrate. Zapier supports thousands of apps, from CRM tools, to email marketing platforms, social media sites, and more.

  3. Define the Workflow: Determine what information is shared between your apps. For example, you can set up a Zap to automatically add new email subscribers to your CRM system.

  4. Automation: After setting up, Zapier will run the Zaps automatically, sharing data between your apps and performing set tasks without manual input, saving you time and reducing errors.

Use Cases in Foodzilla

Let's delve into Foodzilla's specific triggers and actions and their potential use cases:

Foodzilla's Triggers:

  1. Client Added: Activates when a new client is added to Foodzilla.

    • Use Case: Whenever a new client is added to Foodzilla, you can automatically sync this information to your CRM or email marketing tool to send a welcome email.
  2. Meal Plan PDF Link Created: Triggers when a Meal Plan PDF link is generated on Foodzilla.

    • Use Case: Once a meal plan PDF link is generated, Zapier can send an automated email to the client with the link attached, or perhaps save the PDF to a designated folder in your cloud storage.
  3. Receive a Chat Message: Initiates when a chat message is received on Foodzilla.

    • Use Case: When you get a chat message from a client on Foodzilla, you can set up a notification to be sent to your mobile device or even create a task in your task management tool to follow up.

Foodzilla's Actions:

  1. Add Client: This action allows for a new client to be added to Foodzilla automatically.

    • Use Case: If you gather client details through an online form or another platform, once the form is submitted, Zapier can automatically add this client to Foodzilla.
  2. Archive Client: This enables you to archive a client within Foodzilla.

    • Use Case: After a specific period of inactivity or completion of a program, you can automate the archiving of clients in Foodzilla to declutter the active client list.
  3. Invite Client Without Registration: This action sends an invitation to a client without requiring them to register.

    • Use Case: If you want to quickly onboard a client without having them go through the complete registration process, once their details are added to another platform (like a CRM), Zapier can trigger an invitation to them from Foodzilla.
  4. Send a Chat Message: This allows you to automate the sending of chat messages.

    • Use Case: Suppose you've set up a calendar app to remind you of client milestones (e.g., completing a 30-day challenge). Once that milestone is achieved, Zapier can auto-generate a congratulatory chat message to the client from you.
