Upload QuestionPro Response to DropBox as a PDF
For the longest time, I could not figure out a way to have QuestionPro survey responses upload to DropBox automatically as a PDF. I finally figured out a solution so I thought I would share and include my process in case any of the other steps would be helpful. I’m a beginner in Zapier so these are rough stabs at what I was trying to do. The DropBox zap allows you to create custom text files in DropBox. However, our surveys included signatures which needed to be included in the survey response. Try Number 1: QuestionPro has an email notification function which allows you to automatically send responses as they come in to any email you identify. I started by experimenting with this and having the email sent to the Zapier email, then I used Zapier formatting to pull the html and a HTML converter application to convert it to a PDF. Initially, the HTML converter created one long PDF that was difficult to read, so I used the Zapier Formatter to split the HTML into chunks before converting i
MySQL Zap batch treatment to save tasks

Is there a way to do a batch that would zapp all rows at once and save up on the numbers of task ?Maybe with a utility which would act as a tampon ? Thanks

Another 2.5 minutes saved per Zap
A colleague asked for my help to reduce the amount of steps it takes for those on the her team to setup an environment for new projects. These steps currently take about 2.5 minutes each time they get a new project. The steps include...1. Open appropriate Google Drive folder2. Name the folder by copy/pasting the project name3. Create a shortcut pointing to the original Quote Request sheet provided by client4. Create an internal version of the Quote Request prefaced with [INTERNAL] in the nameSo, I got to work and created a Zap which is triggered via an Alchemer form that the point person on her team fills out with the following information...1. Project Name2. Project Code3. Link to Quote Request Sheet4. Team member's emailZapier monitors Alchemer and once a form is submitted, it then does all of the above work on behalf of the form submitter. An email is sent to the submitter once the bot is done which includes a link to the new folder.Here's the diagram of the workflow…
Exclude Blank QuestionPro Survey Answers in Generated Google Doc
So in my other post I described how I set up a zap which creates a Google Doc from a QuestionPro response which includes the image of the signature by using HTML. The next problem I ran into was that 2 questions in the survey were formatted as tables and particularly long. They wasted a lot of space in the survey response document that was created when they were blank. So I needed to figure out a way to exclude or remove these questions from the response document when they were blank so the document was shorter. I am a beginner, but I thought I would include the steps I went through in case they are of any help. They may not be the most efficient way of accomplishing my goals. Try Number 1: The key words here are “exclude” or “remove.” I started by trying to figure out how I might remove that section of the html if the responses to those questions were blank. I intended to use Zapier formatting to find and remove the html for the blank questions after applying a filter that tests whet
Trigger your Zaps from Pipedrive with a button click
Hi All,All of you who work with Pipedrive are probably familiar with some difficulties and limitations on how you can trigger your Zaps from you deal, organization or person. As we know currently the options are either through webhooks, filters etc. which is often inefficient or you may receive multiple hooks for the same event.At the same time it may be very confusing for a user to understand if a Zap did / should have triggered, as they have no visibility on the rules you have set up.For this reason we have developed a free Pipedrive add-on which allows you to create custom buttons on any Pipedrive deal, person or organization. You can then listen on the button clicks in your Zap though a webhook. The add-on can be found in the Pipedrive marketplace: Pipedrive Marketplace - Third Party Apps & Integrations 1There’s also an example in our help documents how to set things up: https://help.zimple.io/books/zimple-oneclick-en/page/oneclick-zapierHope you enjoy it as much as we do!Vellu

Your wishlist needed: Vacation management, out of office and auto responder integrations
What happens when you go on vacation but all your collaboration tools keep running and expect input from you? How do you escape from the stress of notification floods? We feel that there’s a lot to do in terms of integrating productivity applications to shut them down or silence them when we decide that we need to rest. And it’s not just about the notifications, but about having simple processes that can deflect work to a colleague or warn customers that you can’t answer in time, just this one time.Which productivity apps would you like to put behind an Out of Office assistant? Task managers like Asana, trello, or monday.com? Marketing and sales platforms like HubSpot or Salesforce? We’re actively collecting feedback to understand this pain point better and help the Zapier community.About meHi there! I’m the product owner for Out of Office Assistant for Jira cloud. It’s a plugin that allows to A) automatically reassign work away from users who are out of the office to colleagues who ar
