How to set up Zapier

For example, if you wish to create a zap which automates a new sign up in Teachable triggering a new contact in ActiveCampaign - Teachable will be the first (trigger app) and the Active Campaign will be the second (action app)

If you wish to create a zap which automates a new form completion in ActiveCampaign triggering a new student in Teachable - ActiveCampaign will be the ‘trigger app’ and Teachable will be the ‘action app’.

You will then need to select a trigger and an action. For example - new student enrols - trigger, the person added to list in ActiveCampaign - action

Next, Zapier will prompt you to connect your Teachable account. Click the drop-down and select ‘ add a new account’

Copy your primary subdomain into Zapier.

Zapier then prompts you to test the connection by finding a student.

You will then need to connect your other third party software to Zapier - in our case, this is ActiveCampaign.

Select add a new account from the drop-down menu. Zapier will prompt you to enter the ActiveCampaign API URL and API Key.

This can be found in “My Settings” in your ActiveCampaign account under the “Developer” tab.

From here, you will have to choose which ActiveCampaign list the Zap will be using and enter which information you want to be copied across.

And that’s it! All that's left to do is turn your zap on, test it and leave Zapier to do it’s magic!

The process may differ slightly, depending on which third party software you are connecting and which action and trigger you choose.
