What is Zapier and how do I set it up?

Connect Approval Donkey to hundreds of other apps with Zapier.

The Zapier & Approval Donkey Zapbook (https://zapier.com/zapbook/Approval Donkey/) lets you connect Approval Donkey to hundreds of other web services. Automated connections called Zaps, set up in minutes with no coding, can automate your day-to-day tasks and build workflows between apps that otherwise wouldn't be possible.

Each Zap has one app as the **Trigger**, where your information comes from and which causes one or more **Actions** in other apps, where your data gets sent automatically.
