Zapier Integration

How to use Zapier for Metric Updates

  1. Within Zapier, click Make a Zap to get started.

  2. Next, select a Trigger app and define your Trigger criteria.

  3. Once your Trigger criteria is successfully added, move on to the Action component of your Zap. 

  4. Select Hoopla as your Action app and choose one of the two Metric update options (Increment Metric Value or Decrement Metric Value).

  5. If you have not already done so, connect to your Hoopla Account by clicking on Connect to Account and Authorize your Hoopla account to integrate with Zapier.

  6. Configure the details of your Metric update:
    • Metric Name - Select a Metric from your Hoopla account to apply the updates to
    • Amount -  Select an amount by which you want to increment/decrement an existing value. If there is no pre-existing value, the value entered here becomes the initial value.
    • User Email - Specify the email address of the user whose metric will be updated; this email address must match the User's email address within Hoopla.

  7. After successfully testing your Zap, be sure to give your Zap a name on toggle the Zap On. That's it!

 

How to use Zapier for Newsflashes

  1. Within Zapier, click Make a Zap to get started.

  2. Next, select a Trigger app and define your Trigger criteria.

  3. Once your Trigger criteria is successfully added, move on to the Action component of your Zap. 

  4. Select Hoopla as your Action app and choose Create Newsflash Event.

  5. If you have not already done so, connect to your Hoopla Account by clicking on Connect to Account and Authorize your Hoopla account to integrate with Zapier.

  6. Configure the details of your Metric update:
    • Newsflash Name - Give your Newsflash a name here; this is the name you will see in your Channel's list of available Newsflashes so we recommend choosing a name that relates your Trigger app (e.g. Twitter Zap)
    • Title - Select a Title for your Newsflash to be displayed on your TV channel (this can either be the same as the Newsflash Name or something different, it's up to you!)
    • User Email (optional) - Specify the email address of a user to attribute this Newsflash to; this email address must match the User's email address within Hoopla.
    • Message - Write a message to display here; you can use Merge Fields to populate the Message with information from the Trigger app (e.g. Opportunity or Account name, Lead source, etc.)

  7. After successfully testing your Zap, be sure to give your Zap a name on toggle the Zap On. 

  8. Your last step will be to go into Hoopla and add your Newsflash to your Channel.
