Using Zapier for…
The practical uses of Zapier and TestGorilla are many, we encourage you to play around with the integration to get a feel for everything that is out there.
When it comes to trigger events, they are currently available for when a candidate starts or completes an assessment, or when an assessment is created or cloned. When used as an action, you can use Zapier to invite a candidate from TestGorilla.
If you want to use Zapier’s inbuilt tools for filtering, formatting, or delay, you can parse even more information from the assessment - such as its name, candidate results, candidate’s email address, and much more.
On the Zapier website we created and published some example templates you can use to kick off your automation process, with websites or apps like Slack, Airtable, or Trello.
We are continuing to develop this integration, which means we are looking at practical examples to include as ideas here, in the Zapier help center, and on the platform.
As we learn from what is being automated, we will make creating zaps with TestGorilla a better user experience.
This is an ongoing process, if you’d like to get involved by sharing your feedback and ideas, please contact us.
