Step 3: Choose Your Trigger
After selecting Insightly, you will be asked to choose a trigger - an event in Insightly that starts your workflow. Triggers could be 'New Contact', 'New Project', 'New Opportunity', etc. Select the trigger that suits your automation needs and click 'Save + Continue'.

Step 4: Connect Your Insightly Account
Next, you will need to connect your Insightly account to Zapier. Click on 'Connect an Account' and you'll be prompted to enter your Insightly API key.

Before proceeding, Zapier will ask you to test the trigger to ensure it works properly. Follow the instructions to complete the test and confirm the trigger is set up correctly.

Step 7: Choose an Action App
With your trigger in place, it's time to choose what happens next. This can involve another app that Zapier supports; select the app and the corresponding action.

Step 8: Connect Action App and Customize
Connect the action app (if not already connected) by signing in to your account within that service. Then, customize the action by deciding what data from Insightly should go to the other app based on the trigger you specified.

Step 9: Test Your Zap
After setting up your action, it's crucial to test it out. Run a test to ensure that the data flows from Insightly to your chosen app as expected.
