Designed by Anthropic, a company that conducts AI research with an emphasis on safety and training harmless AI systems, Claude is a nifty, steerable chatbot with a personality you can modify. 

Claude can summarize documents, answer questions about complex topics, write copy, and code—everything you'd expect an AI chatbot to do. But when you pair Claude with Zapier, it can do a lot more. 

With our automated workflows—called Zaps—you can connect your favorite apps to Claude and automate anything from writing blog posts based on keywords you store in Google Sheets to analyzing customer feedback forms at scale. Here are a few ways to get started. 

New to Zapier? It's workflow automation software that lets you focus on what matters. Combine user interfaces, data tables, and logic with 6,000+ apps to build and automate anything you can imagine. Sign up for free to use this app, and thousands more, with Zapier.

Write blog posts and outlines based on keywords

When used as a writer tool, Claude does a decent job of creating blog post outlines (and even the posts themselves) based on the topic you give it—and the voice you assign it. 

But even then, you'll still have to comb through each post and add in specific keywords and SEO strategies to ensure your content ranks well in search engines. With the Claude integration, you can do this automatically. 

For example, let's say you store specific keywords for an article-to-be in a tool like Google Sheets or Airtable. These Zaps will take those keywords, write the post or outline, and add them in naturally before sending those AI-generated results back to Google Sheets or Slack for you and your team to review.

Respond to user messages

Let's face it: We all receive an incredible amount of messages every day—and that's just for work. 

Whether you need a helping hand replying to team members in Slack or you'd like to respond to customer emails faster (without scrimping on quality), these Zaps can do the heavy lifting for you. 

The best part? You can even send new customers or prospects emails based on their info in tools like your CRM to create ultra-personalized messages. Thanks to Claude's ultra-chatty persona, you'll generate messages that resonate—and sound like a human wrote them.

Summarize key information 

One of the most time-consuming aspects of my job is distilling information from large amounts of text—fast. Whether it's summarizing meeting transcripts to determine next steps or researching a topic on the web, the hours do pile up. 

With these Zaps, you can easily get quick summaries of online articles, extract meaningful quotes from transcripts, and even determine action items, all without the manual hassle. Then, once Claude generates your summary, you can send it to another app for easy reading, like Slack or your project management tool.

Write social posts

Need a way to boost your company's social presence online? If you don't have the time to write regular social posts or just want to hand the reins over to AI, you can use these Zaps to write snappy, engaging content based on a brief or trending topic. 

Whether you add your briefs to Google Sheets or Asana or log trending topics in Airtable, these Zaps will write posts according to the rules of each social platform. Finally, you can directly push them live to your social media site or store them in your database for review. 

Analyze surveys and feedback 

Do you work in HR and spend a lot of time analyzing employee feedback? Or maybe you're developing and fine-tuning a product—and need to know what your test users think. 

If you use a form tool like Google Forms to collect responses, you know that combing through each response and generating a succinct report takes a lot of time. 

Instead, you can combine the power of AI and automation to redesign the whole process. These Zaps will collect your form responses and analyze each one accordingly (and even categorize them based on labels you assign) before storing the analysis in Google Sheets or another app of your choice. 

Streamline your work processes with Claude

With Claude and Zapier, you can automatically streamline a lot of your work processes to help you move forward, faster. That way, you can expand Claude's chatbot capabilities and improve work across all your apps. 

Zapier supports thousands of apps, so you automate almost any task at work. Start building your Zap now and see what you can create.
