Zapier allows you to connect Booqable to various applications that can help to automate tasks. The integration lets you create zaps, which work by selecting a trigger such as ‘Started Order’ and an action within another application.
An example would be an automated text message sent to customers based on a specific order status. The zap would be defined in the following way: If an order was set to 'Picked up' in Booqable (trigger), a text messaging application such as MessageBird would send a text message (action) to the customer who’s assigned to an order.
The above is just an example of what can be achieved and automated using Booqable and Zapier. Below you will find a list of available triggers and actions:
Reserved Order: This trigger activates when an order is reserved in Booqable.
Started Order: This trigger activates when an order is marked as ‘picked up’ in Booqable.
