How to Start Using UpKeep’s Zapier Integrations

If you’ve ever been wondering if UpKeep is able to integrate with another software that you’re using for business needs, the answer might be relatively simple! Through our direct integration with a company called Zapier, you’ll be able to do exactly this. Zapier allows for integrations with a whole catalog of applications. We currently have a few triggers that you can directly interface with software of your choosing, these are:

  • Work Order Status Change – Triggers when a status changes on a work order.
  • New Work Order – Triggers when a new work order is created.
  • New Request – Triggers when a new request is created.

Utilizing triggers will allow you to set-up automated actions, an example of this is when a work order status changes, you could have it automate an email through a gmail integration. Alternatively you can also have a tool integrate with UpKeep to populate actions within our application! These are called actions, and currently the two actions available are:

  • Create Request
  • Create Work Order
