Zapier’s integration with Mailmodo allows you to:
Import contacts from your software stack into Mailmodo
Export email form submissions to your web applications
Trigger an email campaign through Mailmodo
To carry out the aforementioned functions, you need to first integrate Zapier with Mailmodo. To do that, follow the steps mentioned in this guide.
Now, to trigger mails in Mailmodo through your software stack via Zapier, follow these steps:
1. Create a transactional campaign in Mailmodo that will be triggered by an event in your software stack
Let's demonstrate this by setting up a triggered (transactional) mail in Mailmodo that will be triggered whenever an entry is made (a row is appended) in Google Sheets
First, go to the 'Templates' tab in Mailmodo and design a new Email (or choose from the existing 'Saved Emails')
Once your template is ready go to the 'Transactional' tab and click on 'New Transactional Campaign'
Choose the template that you've created
Enter the campaign details.
In the review section, ensure all the details are correctly shown. After reviewing, click on 'Enable Campaign' to create the transactional campaign.
Once the campaign is enabled, you will see the API Trigger Endpoint displayed for the campaign.
2. Creating a Zap in Zapier to trigger the above campaign in Mailmodo whenever a row in appended in your Google Sheet
On the Zapier dashboard, click on 'Make a Zap'
Since the trigger event will be addition of a row in your Google Sheets, in the trigger tab, choose Google Sheets
In the Trigger Event section, choose 'New Spreadsheet Row'. Then click on 'Continue'
Select the Google Sheets account you want to use.
Select the Spreadsheet and Worksheet to be used to create the trigger
Once the trigger setup is complete, test it by clicking on 'Test trigger'
Setting up the App Event
The action will be performed in Mailmodo. So, in the App Event tab, search for Mailmodo and select Mailmodo (1.2.0)
In the Action Event tab, select 'Trigger Campaign' and click on 'Continue'
Next select the Mailmodo account. You will be asked to sign-in in the next step. Here, you need to paste the API key that you received in Mailmodo. You can access it anytime by going to the 'Integrations' tab in Mailmodo, and clicking on 'See details' under Zapier
Paste the API key in the box. Then click on 'Yes, Continue'.
Set up the Action Event.
Campaign Name: Select the transactional campaign to be triggered
Email: Enter the Email ID to which the mail is to be triggered, or map it to the column header containing the mail IDs (to which the mails are to be triggered) in the connected Google Sheet
Subject: Enter the subject line, or map it to 1 of the column headers in the connected Google Sheet
Append to Mailmodo's list: Select the contacts list in Mailmodo to which the mail IDs will be appended
Once Action Event is setup, test your trigger by clicking on 'Test & Continue'
If the events have been correctly setup, following screen will appear. Click on 'Turn on Zap' and the Zap will be successfully configured
Henceforth, any row appended in the selected Google Sheet will trigger a mail in Mailmodo.
