How to automate material calculation using Zapier based on project information?

Is it possible to set up an automated system using Zapier to calculate the amount of materials needed for a particular project based on the information captured?

For example, if a customer intends to build an 85 square meter terrace if I have predefined defined a certain amount of materials required for every square meter of the terrace, and it then auto-fills a Doc or Sheet with how much materials are going to be needed in total?

Hi @Claus Jensen 

Good question.

It would be helpful for you to outline a specific example of the inputs and desired outputs plus which apps you are trying to use.

You can search Zap apps here:

Each Zap app has a profile page that lists the available triggers/actions.

Hi @Troy Tessalone 

Thanks for the quick reply.

An example of the inputs gathered:

  • {Type} - terrace 
  • {Material} - termowood
  • {Foundation} - Beam
  • {Squaremeter} - 85

If that set of information is captured, I would like to automate a process that auto-fills a document with the required amount of each material to cover an area of 85 square meters.

I already know the calculation for the material use, I just need it to be able to autofill and multiply it by the square meters. 

I hope this makes sense.
