Streamlining Electronic Signature Processes: Integrating Zapier with HelloSign

Published on Feb 28th, 2024

In today's busy world, efficient workflow automation tools are essential for enhancing productivity and reducing manual tasks. One such powerful integration involves Zapier and HelloSign, which when combined, can significantly streamline your electronic signature processes. Here’s how you can get Zapier to work with HelloSign, ensuring your documents are securely signed and managed with ease.

Step 1: Establish Accounts
Before you set up any integrations, you need active accounts with both Zapier and HelloSign. If you haven't already, register with HelloSign for an electronic signature service and create a Zapier account to automate workflows between different apps.

Step 2: Understand Zapier Triggers and Actions
In Zapier's terminology, a 'Trigger' is an event in an app that starts the workflow, while an 'Action' is the event that Zapier automates in another app following the trigger. Familiarizing yourself with these concepts will allow you to create more effective Zaps (automated workflows).

Step 3: Create a New Zap
In your Zapier dashboard, click the 'Make a Zap!' button. Select HelloSign as the trigger app and choose the specific event in HelloSign, such as 'Document Signed' or 'Signature Request Sent', that will initiate your workflow.

Step 4: Connect and Authorize HelloSign
You’ll need to connect to your HelloSign account to allow Zapier to monitor for the selected trigger. Follow the instructions to authorize the integration, and Zapier will test it to ensure everything is connected properly.

Step 5: Choose a Resulting Action
After setting up the trigger, decide what should happen in another app once your HelloSign event occurs. For example, you can choose to have a notification sent via Gmail, add a row to a Google Sheet, or update a record in a CRM like Salesforce – the options are numerous.

Step 6: Customize the Action
Once you’ve picked the action app, customize what exactly will happen. This could involve mapping fields from HelloSign to the chosen app, like attaching the signed document to an email or updating a project status.

Step 7: Test Your Zap
Before you set your Zap live, Zapier offers the option to test it out. This step ensures that the trigger and action you’ve set up work as you expect. Make sure all information passes correctly between HelloSign and the action app.

Step 8: Activate Your Zap
With successful testing, you’re ready to turn on your Zap and let automation do the heavy lifting. Now anytime the trigger event happens in HelloSign, Zapier will automatically carry out your specified action in the other app.

By integrating Zapier with HelloSign, you leverage the benefits of automated workflows, reducing the time spent on manual tasks and focusing more on critical business operations.
