SmartSurvey just got a lot more connected – find out how we have updated our Zapier integration!
SmartSurvey connects with 1,000+ apps on Zapier, including Salesforce, Office 365, Google Sheets, and Hubspot allowing you to automatically send information from survey responses to your other favourite business tools. With the Zapier and SmartSurvey integration, you can gain more insights and make the most of the information you collect.
Our Zapier integration went live in February 2017 and since then we have added some new Zaps and we wanted to let you know about them. A Zap is a blueprint for tasks you may have to do over and over again: “When I get a new thing in A (a trigger), do this other thing in B (an action). SmartSurvey can now be both a trigger and an action, and you can mix and match them to automate just about anything.
How SmartSurvey Works with Zapier
- Send a survey: Triggers when a new contact is created
- Create a contact: Triggers when a survey is filled out
- New Response: Triggers when a survey has a new response.
How Zapier Works
An example might be “When I get a new entry from a SmartSurvey form, create a new lead in Salesforce.” You can create as much granularity as you need. For instance, you might say that the phone number from your SmartSurvey contact form should be the work phone of your new Salesforce lead. Say you receive five new entries, Zapier takes each one and makes a new lead in Salesforce, customized to the way you specified in your Zap.
Without any more effort from you, data flows from one service to the other!

How it Works
A Zap is quick and easy to set up. Don’t worry, integrating with Zapier requires absolutely no knowledge of coding whatsoever! As a user, you simply select Triggers (the event that starts the Zap) and Actions (the event the Zap performs) to automate the task of your choice.
Once you have set up a Zap, simply leave Zapier to do the work, it will run automatically and all you need to do is monitor the activity. You can turn Zaps on and off at any time.
