Streamline Your Content Workflow: Integrating Feedly with Zapier

Published on Feb 28th, 2024

In the rapidly evolving digital world, staying up-to-date with the latest content and news can be overwhelming. However, Feedly and Zapier combine to create a powerful tool that can streamline your content curation and sharing process. Here's how you can use Zapier with Feedly to automate your workflows and save time.


Feedly is a popular RSS feed aggregator that helps you stay on top of the news and content from your favorite websites, while Zapier is a web automation tool that connects your favorite apps and services, automating tasks without the need for coding. By integrating Feedly with Zapier, you can automate actions based on the content you receive in Feedly, such as sharing articles on social media, saving them for later reading, or even organizing them into spreadsheets for analysis.


Step 1: Set up your Feedly Account
Before you begin, ensure that you have a Feedly account set up and that you're familiar with its features. Curate your feeds by subscribing to the sources that are most relevant to your interests or industry.


Step 2: Create a Zapier Account
If you don't already have a Zapier account, sign up for one at zapier.com. Once you're logged in, you're ready to create a 'Zap', which is an automated workflow between Feedly and another service.


Step 3: Choose a Trigger
Start creating your Zap by selecting Feedly as the trigger app. Triggers are events in one app that start your workflow. In Zapier, Feedly offers several triggers such as 'New Article in Source', 'New Article in Category', or 'New Article from Search'.


Step 4: Select an Action
After selecting your Feedly trigger, choose the action that should happen automatically. For example, you might want to add new Feedly articles to a Google Sheets spreadsheet, post them to a Slack channel, or save them to Pocket. Zapier integrates with numerous apps, giving you a wealth of options for actions.


Step 5: Customize Your Zap
Configure your trigger and action by selecting the specific Feedly feed and the corresponding action details. You may need to log into your Feedly account through Zapier to allow permission for the integration.


Step 6: Test Your Zap
Before setting it live, test your Zap to make sure it functions as expected. Zapier will walk you through the process of testing each step, ensuring that your Feedly articles trigger the actions in your connected apps.


Step 7: Activate and Monitor Your Zap
Once you’re confident that the Zap works properly, activate it. Your automation is now ready, and you can monitor it from your Zapier dashboard. Make adjustments as needed to optimize your workflow.


By following these steps, you optimize your content curation process, reducing the time spent on manual tasks and focusing more on strategic activities.


Always remember, with continual updates and new apps being added, Zapier's capabilities keep expanding, so keep an eye out for new ways to improve your Feedly workflows.
