Before we get into setting up workflows, you'll need an account.

Registering for Zapier is totally free and you get 5 totally free Zaps to start, so we do not need to fret about cost here.

Now let's enter into the Zaps.

Zap 1: Get a text if it's going to rain with Zapier

To get a concept of how this works, we'll begin with something simple. We're going to establish a Zap that will send us a text message if the weather condition predicts rain.

To start, click the huge Make a Zap button on the top left of the page when you're logged into your account.

Making a brand-new Zap Here, Zapier would like to know the very first app we wish to link. Since we're going to base our Zap on the weather condition, search for “& ldquo; weather condition & rdquo; and choose Weather condition by Zapier. Selecting the Weather by Zapier integration It will then ask you to select a Trigger Occasion, where you'll choose “& ldquo; Will It Rain”Today? & rdquo;, then you can click the Continue

button. Picking the Will it Rain Today? occasion When selecting Weather as an occasion, it requires a bit of information to provide us a personalized prediction. Particularly, it requires your Latitude and Longitude, which we can look up using latlong.net Finding latitude and longitude with latlong.net You can then enter your Latitude and Longitude into the Customize Projection screen of Zapier, select your Units which defaults to Fahrenheit, and then click the huge Continue button.

At this point, you can click Test Trigger, which merely makes sure it's working, and click Continue again.

Now we're going to tell Zapier what to do with the information once it knows it's going to rain.

In the Do this ... panel, search for “& ldquo; sms & rdquo; and select SMS by Zapier

. Selecting SMS by Zapier We're going to leave the App and Occasion as the defaults, so the next screen you can just click Continue.

SMS App and Occasion Now, for Zapier to send you a text, it needs to verify that your telephone number comes from you or that the telephone number is intentionally registering for these texts. To do that, it sends you a one-time PIN that you'll get in.

So click Sign in to SMS by Zapier, which will open a popup window.

Here, enter your phone number, and pick Sms or Call as the confirmation method at which point it will contact you with a PIN.

Sign in to SMS by Zapier and send out a PIN With that PIN, enter it into the field and click Continue.

Going into the SMS confirmation PING At this moment the window will close and move you back to the initial flow. Here, click Continue once again.

Now we get to customize the text that we receive.

In the From Number field, Zapier offers a bunch of telephone number you can utilize. You can either select one number to always send out from, which you can establish as a contact so you understand it's Zapier, or you can choose Random, which will use a random number whenever.

Then, click within Message, and it will bring up some options. I would like to know whatever possible if it's going to rain, consisting of the likelihood, max temperature level, and summary, so we can pick all or as much as we desire and once again click Continue.

Configuring Weather message Finally we get to test if our Zap worked. At this point whatever must be configured, so click the Test & & Evaluation button and you ought to get a sample text!

Note: If you choose a single From Number, you may be restricted in how regular you can get texts, so if you do not get it right away, that might be why. Setting random assists avoid that concern, however the the number isn't consistent.

And once you enjoy with the configuration, you can click Turn On Zap.

Switching on the SMS Zap You'll now get texts in the early morning if the weather condition is forecasting rain!

Zap 2: Print a test every week with Google Cloud Print

This one doesn't sound interesting, but have you ever gone through a long period of time where you didn't print something, just to wind up with dried printer heads or worse yet, a now unsalvageable printer?

We can prevent this by merely running a weekly print task that keeps our printer ink nice and fresh.

For this, we'll utilize Google Cloud Print. To make this work, you'll need to already have this set up with your Google account.

Let's develop a brand-new Zap and this time for our “& ldquo; When this occurs & hellip;” & rdquo; search for and select Arrange by Zapier.

Choosing Schedule by Zapier We can then pick a Trigger Event of Weekly and click Continue.

Setting Trigger Event as Weekly Next, you can select the Day Of The Week and Time Of Day you want to print. I personally run this job weekly at 8pm on Sundays right before the start of a brand-new week. Once set up, click Continue.

Setting up Zapier schedule At this point, we can click Test trigger, which much like before makes sure it's working appropriately, and then we can click Continue.

Now, for our “& ldquo;” Do this & hellip; & rdquo; we want to print, so search for and choose Google Cloud Print

. Choosing Google Cloud Print And for the action, select Submit Print Job.

Setting Send Print Job as Action Event At this moment, you'll require to sign into Google Cloud Print. This will open a window and have you visit through Google so that Zapier can user interface with the service.

As soon as linked, click Continue.

Now we can configure out print task. Here we'll wish to define what we print.

Configuring Print Task in Zapier In the above, we're setting up:

Which Printer: the printer we want to print to linked to Google Cloud Print

Content: this can be a URL to a document, HTML, or plain text. I'm using a URL which is a basic test page I made that has some color in it

Content Type: you'll want to set this depending upon what you embed in Material. If you set a URL like I did, it ought to be URL

Title Of Print Job: the name of the task so you can see it in the print logs

Number of Copies: most likely simply desire 1 so it doesn't squander ink and paper

Color or Grayscale: you'll want to clearly set this if you want color. The concept is to refresh all of the ink cartridges, so just printing black won't assist the color ink, so in my case, I selected color

The rest of the fields are optional, do not hesitate to tailor to your preference.

With our configuration set, click Continue, and similar to in the past, we can click Test to see our print task in action and if we're happy, we can click Turn on Zap!

Zap 3: Smashing Publication Job Signals with Gmail

If we're looking for a task, it can be a pain to have to go to every job board every day (or every hour, am I right?). But we can automate this process when the job board supports it.

Thankfully, job boards like Smashing Publication and a whole lot of others provide RSS feeds which we can hook right in to Zapier to automate getting an e-mail whenever a new task is posted.

To begin, let's develop a new Zap, and this time, look for RSS and select RSS by Zapier.

Choosing RSS by Zapier For our Trigger Occasion, choose New Item in Feed, then click Continue.

Setting New Item in Feed as Trigger Occasion At this point, we want to go into a feed URL. This will be the URL to the XML RSS feed that websites make available. For Smashing Magazine, you can find it here:

So get in that URL above into Feed URL (you can leave Username and Password blank), and keep Various GUID chosen for What Triggers A New Feed Item. Then click Continue.

Setting RSS Feed URL Like normal, now you can check the trigger to make sure it works. If the RSS feed stands, this will be smooth, otherwise you might see a mistake. The above URL ought to be valid!

Checking the RSS feed Next, we require to pick what we want to make with the new item. Because we want it emailed, we can choose our e-mail service, which in my case is Gmail.

Choosing Gmail in Zapier For our action, we want to Send out Email.

Setting Action Occasion as Send Out Email Next, you want to check in to your account, comparable to what we made with Google Cloud Print. This should be your Google account that you utilize Gmail with.

Check in to Gmail Now when we personalize our email, we want to include the following:

To: wherever you want these sent to, most likely the exact same account you signed into Gmail with

From: pick your Gmail account

From Name: can be anything you'll recognize, like I'll utilize Colbybot

Subject: can be whatever you 'd like, however an useful idea could be “& ldquo; New Task Alert: followed by picking the title from the dropdown selection

Physique: you can leave as Plain

Body: I would advise including all tokens you'll find helpful including the Title, Description, and Link

Configuring job alert e-mail Once you're done configuring, you can hit continue. Then, similar to before, click Test & & Evaluation, and you ought to receive your test e-mail.

Test job alert email Finally if you're happy with the configuration, switch on the Zap, and enjoy your task search!

More Ideas

Here's more concepts to get you relocating the right direction:

Post Tweets to Slack: each time an account tweets or somebody from a list of accounts tweets, post that tweet to Slack

Submit Github Bugs to Jira: whenever somebody tags a Github Problem with a label of “& ldquo; bug & rdquo;, create a brand-new ticket in Jira with that Problem information

Post RSS Products to Twitter: do you write your own material? Set up an RSS feed to automatically publish a tweet with your brand-new post

Not Google Assistant

The only thing that it's missing for me right now is Google Assistant, otherwise I would have included some Zap concepts for that.

IFTTT supports Google Assistant for easier circulations, however Zapier can get more powerful.

Webhooks

Zapier supports web hooks indicating you can truly do whatever you desire. Though this is a premium feature, you can set up some customized workflows based off of brand-new information Zapier sees or accept requests that you post to activate other automations.

What's your preferred Zap?

Love hearing brand-new imaginative ways to utilize Zapier.
