Integrating Wufoo with Zapier: Streamline Your Workflows

Published on Feb 28th, 2024

Efficiency is key in today’s fast-paced business environment, and integrating your web applications can significantly contribute to streamlining your workflow. One popular tool that helps with integration is Zapier, an online automation tool that connects your favorite apps, such as Gmail, Slack, Mailchimp, and more. Among these applications, Wufoo—an online form builder—can be connected to Zapier to automate tasks and enhance productivity.

Zapier functions by triggering actions in other apps whenever a specific event occurs in a connected app. In the case of Wufoo, this means that when a new entry is submitted to a Wufoo form, Zapier can automatically initiate actions in other connected apps based on pre-defined 'Zaps'. You can think of a ‘Zap’ as an automated workflow between your apps that consists of a trigger and one or more actions.

Here's a simple guide on how Zapier connects to Wufoo:

  1. Create a Zapier Account. To get started, you’ll need to create an account on, if you haven’t already. It’s simple, quick, and offers various plans including a free tier.

  2. Choose Wufoo as the Trigger App. Once you’re logged into Zapier, you can create a 'Zap'. Start by choosing Wufoo as the trigger app which will set the event in motion. For example, you might choose New Entry in Wufoo as the trigger.

  3. Connect Your Wufoo Account. After selecting Wufoo as your trigger app, Zapier will prompt you to connect your Wufoo account. You will need to log in with your Wufoo credentials and grant Zapier permission to access your forms.

  1. Set Up Trigger Details. Once connected, you'll choose the specific form in Wufoo you want to trigger the action from and detail the specific conditions required for the trigger, if any.

  2. Choose an Action App. Next, choose the app where you want the action to take place upon form submission in Wufoo. This could be any application Zapier supports that you are using, like Salesforce, Google Sheets, or Trello.

  3. Customize the Action. Define what the action will be—like creating a new contact in a CRM, adding a new row to a spreadsheet, or creating a task in a project management tool, tailored upon the data received from the Wufoo form submission.

  1. Test and Activate the Zap. Before going live, Zapier allows you to test the trigger and action to make sure everything is set up correctly. After testing, you can activate the Zap, and it will run automatically in the background.

In conclusion, connecting Wufoo to Zapier can automate repetitive tasks, reduce human errors, and free up time for more critical business tasks—enabling a more productive and efficient workflow.
