The first thing you'll need to do to get started with hooking up Geckoboard with Zapier and hundreds of other services is to add your Geckoboard Account to Zapier. Click to add a Geckoboard account in your Zap.
Next you will give your new Account a name or label, which is just a handy name for you to recognize within Zapier. It doesn't matter what you name it.
You should then log into your Geckoboard account at Geckoboard.com and retrieve your API key. (The API key is located in the Account Details tab on the left side of the account page.)
After retrieving your API key, enter it into the "API Key" field under your Account title field.
Confirming your Geckoboard API key finishes the process! Your Geckoboard account is now connected to Zapier.
