In this add-on, you can create tasks (adding/editing events, canceling events, new bookings). Details of each task can be exported in JSON format, which is compatible with Zapier. You need to enter your credentials when creating zaps. That’s all.

How to Create Zaps

To create a Zap, which is an automated workflow in Zapier, please follow these steps:

  1. Sign Up or Log In: If you haven’t already, sign up for a Zapier account or log in if you have one.
  2. Make a Zap: Once logged in, you will find a ‘Make a Zap’ button, usually at the top of your dashboard.
  3. Choose a Trigger App: Zapier will ask you to select a Trigger App, which is the service that will start your Zap. You should select Modern Events Calendar.
  4. Select a Trigger: After selecting the app, choose the specific trigger event, like “New Event.”
  5. Connect Your Account: Next, connect to the triggering app with your account credentials available in the Zapier Integration menu in MEC Settings. Zapier will ask for permission to access your account.
  6. Set Up Trigger: Customize the trigger settings if necessary, such as specifying which event label triggers the Zap.
  7. Test the Trigger: Zapier will prompt you to test the trigger to ensure it works. If successful, it will pull in recent data.
  8. Select an Action App: After the trigger, select the app that will perform the action in response to the trigger.
  9. Select an Action: Specify exactly what the action should be. For instance, if the action is adding a new row to a spreadsheet, select the spreadsheet and the data you want to include.
  10. Connect the Action Account: Similar to the trigger app, connect your account for the action app.
  11. Set Up Action: Configure the details of the action. For adding a new row to a spreadsheet, this might involve defining the task details using data from the trigger.
  12. Test the Action: Let Zapier test the action to confirm everything’s working as expected.
  13. Name Your Zap: Give your Zap a descriptive name and turn it on.
  14. Turn on Your Zap: With everything set up, turn the Zap on. It will now run automatically based on the criteria you’ve set.

Afterward, the Zap will run automatically every time the trigger event occurs, carrying out the action without any additional input from you.
