kintone business app platform zapier.jpegWith open APIs, customizable Javascript and built-in software integrations, there are limitless possibilities of what you can build for your business with kintone. But our quest to make you and your team's life easier doesn't stop there.

We want you to get the most out of your data within kintone, which is why we've partnered with Zapier, a service that helps companies connect their favorite apps. 

Zapier helps bring in the data you use the most and interact with it using kintone's powerful pre-built services for automating workflows, assigning tasks, collaborating and customizing apps that run your business within a central and secure IT-governed environment.

Think of it as a bridge between different web apps, even if those apps don’t have native integrations between them. It works using Triggers that watch for events in your apps, then kick off a sequence of Searches and Actions. Searches look up existing data, and Actions create new items. When combined, these "Zaps" complete your tasks automatically.

For example, adding a new kintone record to your Google calendar would be an example of a Zap. If you wanted to move contacts in kintone to a Mailchimp account, that would be another Zap

What can you do with kintone + Zapier?

You can connect kintone to apps like Gmail, Google Calendar, Mailchimp, QuickBooks, Evernote and many others to automate the tedious tasks in your workflow. 

Here are some ways kintone users can take advantage of Zapier:
