How to Get Started With HipChat
The first thing you'll need to do is connect your HipChat Account to Zapier. After you sign up and start creating the Zap you want, Zapier will ask you to start the process:
You can then give your Account a title or label, which is just for your convenience and helps you track multiple accounts. It doesn't have any affect on which Account you actually add to Zapier. In this dialog you will also need to add your admin API key, which can be found at http://hipchat.com/groups/api.
If you see the following error, you added an API key that is not an admin API key. Double check the API key type.
Finally, your accout will be added and verified to be in working condition.
Now you can continue creating your Zap.

Creating clickable links in HipChat is dependent upon what you select as the message format.

I can't connect my HipChat account to Zapier#
If you use a Google account to log into HipChat, unfortunately you won't be able to connect your HipChat account to Zapier. This is something that may change in the future, but not something we have an immediate fix for.
Also, your HipChat account must have an admin token in order to connect. Notification tokens will not work at this time.
