The Most Advanced Zapier Integration for eLearning

We are pre-launching the new and most advanced Zapier integration for online learning platforms. Together, we are transforming how course creators, like you, get the job done ✅.

Enhancing your student experience, streamlining your tasks, avoiding human errors in your accounting books, reaching out to more leads without lifting a finger – it’s now a reality.

The new LearnWorlds-Zapier integration is your master key to connect with 3000+ other apps. Can you picture the massive number of workflows you can automate? (And the time you can save?)

11 completely new triggers — 15 in total, including the existing ones
3 brand new actions — aka 6 in total
One-trigger / multiple-action zaps now available
New search capabilities

You will be able to automate tasks such as lead management, course enrollments, user management, record sales in your accounting software, and also enhance your learners’ experience. You will be able to save dozens of hours of work each month!

With the new LearnWorlds integration for Zapier, you are going to automate your school like a wiz!

Save Time – Swap Tasks for Zaps

By connecting LearnWorlds with any other app you like (Google Sheets, Printful, SurveyMonkey, QuickBooks and other 3000 apps), you can replace manual work with zaps. Zaps are the quickest way to automate your routine workflows via Zapier to improve the efficiency of your school management all-round.

Once you requested and obtained access to the new integration, go to: Settings → Integrations → Zapier to access the integration directly from your school.

To create a Zap (aka a workflow), you need to connect two (or more) apps by selecting a trigger and an action:

So the Zap will make sure that each time a user completes a course, they will receive a feedback form. Timely and reliably.

In case you need, here’s a useful refresher of all the Zapier lingo.

LearnWorlds’ Triggers and Actions

We presented you with a basic example. So let  me take you through the different options we have available for you via the new Zapier integration and plenty of examples that you can apply in your school.

Triggers available from LearnWorlds towards other apps via Zapier

Actions available on LearnWorlds triggered by other apps via Zapier

One trigger, multiple steps

Sometimes one action is not enough. So make sure that for each trigger you set up, you will be able to unlock even multiple sequential steps — including actions, filters, and searches!

So to continue with the example above, once a user receives a survey, we can add a corresponding tag in LearnWorlds.

New search capabilities

The ‘Search’ action allows you to utilize the data you already have about your school in a more productive way!

Essentially, when you want something to happen only for a group of users, you can use a ‘Search’ step between your trigger and the final action.

For example, let’s say that you need to prioritize your school’s inbox. In this scenario, you want to give priority to the emails of your active learners. How do you do that? You can run a search!

a) FALSE → GMAIL (support@yourschool.com) sends an auto-reply
b) TRUE → GMAIL(support@yourschool.com) forwards this email to your direct email (yourname@yourschool.com).

In this way, you can prioritize your active students over unknown contacts.

You can apply the same principle to other cases! Essentially, when you look up users’ information in one of your apps, and you want to cross-check the same info in LearnWorlds or also retrieve info from LearnWorlds about a specific user, you can use a Search action.

You also have the option to create a new record (user or a lead) if the Search doesn’t find any matching data in your school. Together, create and search actions give you a powerful way to connect your favorite apps to your online school.

Set up an automation strategy for your school using Zapier

As said, Zapier can connect your school with over 3000 other mobile apps. If you consider an average of 5 triggers and actions per app, it will result in a mind-boggling number of potential combinations. Too many? No worries. It’s easy.

Think of your automation strategy as cooking a recipe: decide what you want to eat (your goal), fetch the right ingredients (your apps), combine the ingredients (triggers, and actions), and finally enjoy your meal… ahem…your automation!

To set up an automation strategy for your school, follow these sequential steps:

1. Let’s start with the goal

We suggest you pick one topic. By starting small, you can get familiar with the process and grow your school automation gradually. What would you like to automate first?

→ Let’s start with an example from marketing & sales expansion.

2. Identify your usual workflows

→ For example, you may want to add the attendees of a promotional webinar to your school as new leads, and tag them.

3. Create your zap

Go to your LearnWorlds school Zapier integration page and set up your automation based on the triggers and the actions in the tables above.

→ Trigger: a GoToWebinar new webinar registrant is created & Action: a new lead is created in your LearnWorlds school, with a relevant tag.

4. Test & Repeat

Test your zaps and let them run for a few days making sure they work as you intended, and then… Start over with new zaps until you’ve automated all your manual tasks!
