Use Automate.io to connect Typeform to other apps

Connect Typeform to your favorite apps with Automate.io.

What is Automate.io?

Automate.io is an easy-to-use workflow automation tool that lets you connect Typeform to 200+ web apps you use every day. You can pass data through them and automate repetitive tasks without having to code or relying on developers.

Important terminology

Bot: A workflow on Automate.io is called a Bot. For example, you have created a workflow on Automate.io to send your Typeform entries to Salesforce as leads. That is a Bot.

Every Bot needs at least 2 apps—one Trigger app and one(or more) Action app(s).

Trigger app: A Trigger app starts your Bot.

Action app: An Action app performs the action in your Bot.

How it works

Step 1: Go to your Automate.io account.

  • If you don’t have an account, you can create one here.
  • At the top right, click Create a Bot. You will land on the Bot builder page.
  • Give your Bot a name. You can name it usually based on your use case or what you want to accomplish from this automation.

Step 2: Connect your trigger app as Typeform.

  • Search for Typeform and select it.

  • Select the trigger event as New Form Entry (Webhook). Now, under Input Fields, select a form from the Select Form dropdown menu. All its form fields will appear under Output Fields.

Step 3: Connect your action app.

  • Automate.io integrates with over 200 popular apps. So you can connect an app like a CRM, a spreadsheet app, or any tool where you want to send your Typeform data.

Step 4: Map the required fields.

  • Drag & drop the required fields from Typeform to your action app.

Step 5: Save and test the bot.

  • When you’re done, click Save on the top-right corner.
  • Then, proceed to turn ON your bot and do a test run.

That’s all! Your Bot will now automatically save all of your new Typeform form entries to your favorite app.

This is just one of many ways you can create smart workflows using Automate.io with Typeform.
