New Zapier Updates: Go Beyond Business Card Triggers With Our Increased Support for Instant Triggers & Actions

Written By:

We’re excited to share our new (and improved) Zapier integration with you. Our Zapier integration has helped users do more with their scanned business card since launch in 2014, like automatically sending contacts to CRMs, adding to email lists, and kicking off marketing sequences. Given the popularity of task automation, we have expanded this functionality to now be triggered based on tags and contact updates.

What’s New?

You can now create Zaps powered by 15 different Triggers, Searches, and Actions. In addition to enhancing our business card transcription trigger, we now support:

What to Do if You already Used the Zapier Integration

If you were previously using our Zapier integration that only supported business card triggers, you’ll need to update your Zaps to take advantage of the added Triggers, Actions, and Searches. We highly recommend moving your existing apps to the new integration to ensure you continue to have the best experience automating tasks between FullContact and other Zapier supported services. You’ll know which version of  integration your Zap is on based on the name—update your Zaps to “FullContact” from “FullContact (Legacy)”.

If you don’t update your Zaps to use the new integration, they’ll continue to work as expected. But, keep in mind, that we’ll no longer be supporting the FullContact (legacy) integration. This means that when we release updates to the integration, those features will only be available to Zaps that utilize the updated version of the app. You can view detailed instructions on making the switch here and feel free to reach out to our support team with questions. The Zapier support team is also available to help and can be reached at contact [at] zapier.com.
