Alison Groves / January 30, 2015

Three new Zapier community activities. Eleven new apps on Zapier—now 390 integrated apps. A much improved free Zapier Email Parser. And four fresh faces on a growing Zapier team.

As we highlighted in our 2014 recap, Zapier is out to make work easier for you in 2015. Constantly integrating new apps is one way, but improving current integrations and supplying you resources to learn the best ways to use automation is a priority, too. Read on to learn how you can benefit from all three.



The Zapier Community

Hi Zapier users, I'm Alison Groves and if you haven't heard from me yet, I'm excited to meet you. In my new role as Zapier's community caretaker, my goal this year is to meet every single one of you—all 442,654 users. OK, well, that might be a bit ambitious, but I would like to help each of you automate those tedious and time-consuming tasks in your day to get back to doing what matters. Sound like a deal? If you're in, here's three ways you can join me.

Tune In for Live Zapier Demos Weekly

Zapier Demo
New weekly training sessions every Wednesday.

Starting February 11, every Wednesday at 11 a.m. EST we'll host a free training session about the best ways to automate an app with Zapier. So far, we've highlighted Twitter, Google Sheets, Gmail, Pipedrive and Streak. You can tune in live as we do the demo—the next app is Podio—and participate in our Q&A, or stay tuned to @Zapier on Twitter each Thursday for the recording release.

YouCanBook.Me

Sniply

Man of us share content every day across our online networks, and Sniply gives you an easy way to add your own information to that shared content. Add Zapier to that, and you have a great ways to grow your email list and add leads to your CRM.

If you’re a Wordpress user, Ninja Forms is a great way to build a myriad of form types right on your site. Once you have the plugin installed, you can create any form you’d want for your website. Combine that with some of the Zaps below, and you have powerful automation for incoming form data.

LeadOutcome

Marketing automation tools are a reliable way to make your life in lead generation a little bit easier. LeadOutcome can help you connect the dots and make your lead generation a snap. The company put together a welcome page for Zapier users, too, to help you get the most out of both tools.

SupportBee is an easy to use helpdesk that offers a fresh pricing model, too: instead of charging your team per customer support rep, you're charged by the number of tickets you answer. Now use Zapier with SupportBee to, for example, get notifications of new tickets in your team chat app.

ClickDesk

Communicating with your website visitors can be a boon for sales and marketing efforts, and ClickDesk offers several ways to do just that. Use the app to chat, call, or encourage your audience to share your site on social media.

It features the Kanban method for organization of your sales process, too, and when connected to Zapier can save you loads of time creating leads or sending contact data elsewhere.

Sezion
