Now let's get into the Zaps.

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

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

To get started, 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 needs to know the very first app we want to link. Since we're going to base our Zap on the weather, look for “& ldquo; weather condition & rdquo; and choose Weather condition by Zapier. Selecting the Weather condition by Zapier combination It will then ask you to select a Trigger Occasion, where you'll select “& ldquo; Will It Rain”Today? & rdquo;, then you can click the Continue

button. Picking the Will it Rain Today? event When choosing Weather as an occasion, it requires a little bit of info to offer us an individualized prediction. Especially, it requires your Latitude and Longitude, which we can search for utilizing 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 Systems which defaults to Fahrenheit, and after that click the big Continue button.

At this moment, you can click Test Trigger, which merely makes sure it's working, and click Continue once 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 choose SMS by Zapier

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

SMS App and Event Now, for Zapier to send you a text, it needs to confirm that your telephone number belongs to you or that the contact number is knowingly registering for these texts. To do that, it sends you a one-time PIN that you'll enter.

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

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

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

Entering the SMS verification PING At this point the window will close and move you back to the initial flow. Here, click Continue once again.

Now we get to personalize the text that we get.

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

Then, click within Message, and it will raise some choices. I would like to know everything possible if it's going to rain, consisting of the probability, max temperature level, and summary, so we can choose all or as much as we want and again click Continue.

Setting up Weather condition message Lastly we get to check if our Zap worked. At this moment everything ought to be configured, so click the Test & & Review button and you need to receive a sample text!

Note: If you choose a single From Number, you may be limited in how frequent you can get texts, so if you don't get it immediately, that may be why. Setting random helps avoid that concern, but the the number isn't constant.

And when you more than happy with the setup, you can click Switch on Zap.

Turning on the SMS Zap You'll now get texts in the morning if the weather is anticipating rain!

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

This one does not sound exciting, however have you ever gone through an extended period of time where you didn't print something, just to end up with dried printer heads or worse yet, a now unsalvageable printer?

We can avoid this by just running a weekly print job that keeps our printer ink good and fresh.

For this, we'll use Google Cloud Print. To make this work, you'll need to currently have this configured with your Google account.

Let's create a new Zap and this time for our “& ldquo; When this occurs & hellip;” & rdquo; look for and select Set up by Zapier.

Picking Set Up by Zapier We can then select a Trigger Event of Each week and click Continue.

Setting Trigger Event as Each Week Next, you can pick the Day Of The Week and Time Of Day you wish to print. I personally run this job weekly at 8pm on Sundays right prior to the start of a brand-new week. As soon as set up, click Continue.

Setting up Zapier schedule At this moment, we can click Test trigger, which similar to previously makes sure it's working appropriately, and after that we can click Continue.

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

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

Setting Submit Print Task as Action Event At this point, you'll need to sign into Google Cloud Print. This will open a window and have you visit through Google so that Zapier can interface with the service.

When linked, click Continue.

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

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

Which Printer: the printer we wish to print to connected to Google Cloud Print

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

Content Type: you'll wish 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: probably simply want 1 so it doesn't waste ink and paper

Color or Black and white: you'll want to explicitly set this if you want color. The idea is to revitalize all of the ink cartridges, so only printing black won't assist the color ink, so in my case, I selected color

The remainder of the fields are optional, feel free to tailor to your preference.

With our configuration set, click Continue, and comparable to before, 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 Magazine Job Notifies with Gmail

If we're searching for a task, it can be a discomfort to have to check out every job board every day (or every hour, am I right?). However we can automate this process when the job board supports it.

Thankfully, job boards like Smashing Magazine and a great deal of others supply RSS feeds which we can hook right in to Zapier to automate getting an email whenever a new task is posted.

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

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

Setting New Product in Feed as Trigger Event At this point, we want to get in a feed URL. This will be the URL to the XML RSS feed that websites provide. For Smashing Publication, you can discover it here:

So get in that URL above into Feed URL (you can leave Username and Password blank), and keep Various GUID selected for What Sets off A Brand-new Feed Product. Then click Continue.

Setting RSS Feed URL Like normal, now you can evaluate the trigger to make certain it works. If the RSS feed stands, this will be smooth, otherwise you might see an error. The above URL ought to stand!

Checking the RSS feed Next, we need to select what we wish to make with the brand-new item. Since we want it emailed, we can pick our e-mail service, which in my case is Gmail.

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

Setting Action Occasion as Send Email Next, you wish to check in to your account, comparable to what we made with Google Cloud Print. This ought to be your Google account that you use Gmail with.

Check in to Gmail Now when we tailor our email, we want to consist of the following:

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

From: pick your Gmail account

From Name: can be anything you'll acknowledge, like I'll use Colbybot

Topic: can be whatever you 'd like, however an useful concept could be “& ldquo; New Job Alert: followed by selecting the title from the dropdown choice

Physique: you can leave as Plain

Body: I would suggest including all tokens you'll discover handy including the Title, Description, and Link

Setting up task alert email Once you're done configuring, you can hit continue. Then, similar to previously, click Test & & Review, and you ought to receive your test email.

Test task alert e-mail Finally if you more than happy with the setup, turn on the Zap, and enjoy your job search!

More Concepts

Here's more ideas to get you moving in the ideal direction:

Post Tweets to Slack: whenever an account tweets or someone from a list of accounts tweets, post that tweet to Slack

File Github Bugs to Jira: whenever someone tags a Github Issue with a label of “& ldquo; bug & rdquo;, create a new ticket in Jira with that Issue information

Post RSS Items to Twitter: do you compose your own content? Establish an RSS feed to immediately post a tweet with your brand-new blog post

Not Google Assistant

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

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

Webhooks

Zapier supports web hooks implying you can truly do whatever you desire. Though this is a premium function, you can establish some custom workflows based off of brand-new data Zapier sees or accept requests that you post to activate other automations.
