Getting started with Zapier

With Tend's Zapier integration you can connect Tend to 1,000+ other web services. You can automate daily tasks, get notifications and build workflows between Tend and any of the 1,000 + other software applications that are connected to Zapier.

These connections are called "Zaps". They can be set up in a few minutes and you don't need to write code to set them up.

Each Zap has one software application that acts as the Trigger, where your information comes from. This trigger sends your data automatically to another software application via Actions
