How to Get Started with YouCanBook.me on Zapier

About YouCanBook.Me's Integration#

Connecting with YouCanBook.Me#

To get started with YouCanBook.me, first click to add a YouCanBook.me account to Zapier. This is the account that will be used in your zap.

YCBM1

It’ll then ask you to name the account, so you’re always clear which account you’re linking to.

YCBM2

And you'll be asked for your YouCanBook.me API Key.

To find your API Key, you'll first want to log into your YCBM account and go to the ‘add ons’ tab on your dashboard, then select Zapier. Click on install. YCBM will generate a unique API key, which you need to copy and paste into the box on Zapier.

YCBM3

Once you've entered your API Key and clicked continue, we'll test your account to make sure the connection works. If it does, you get this reassuring little message, and you're all set!

Common Problems with YouCanBook.me

Trouble passing along your custom fields#

If the custom field isn't showing up at all, make sure that there is shorthand code specified in the YCBM form settings.

If you have a space in your custom field shorthand code, it will not send the value of the field, just the name in brackets. For example, a shorthand code of "First Name" will send a value of '{FIRST NAME}' to us like this:

broken first name

To resolve this you'll want to remove the space in your YouCanBook.me account to be like "FirstName" or "First-Name" and then re-map that field your Zap to refresh the field selection.

The Zap is not getting YouCanBook.me Hooks#

YouCanBook.me batches up sending of webhooks to a run about every five minutes. If you're trying to setup a Zap and not receiving the hook, wait and test just beforethe 5-minute mark and the hooks should come through.
