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.
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.
Enough with copy-pasting. LearnWorlds’ Triggers and Actions
We presented you with a basic example. So let me walk you through the multiple options we have available for you via the new Zapier integration and highlight plenty of examples that you can apply in your school.

|Enrolled in a product||Gives the user access to a course or bundle (either paid or private). If a user with this email already exists in the school, then this user will be enrolled; if not, then a new user will be created and enrolled to the selected product.|
|Unenrolled from product||Gives the user access to a course (free, paid, private) or bundle/subscription. If a user with this email already exists in the school, this user will be enrolled in the selected product; if not, a new user will be created and enrolled in the selected product.|
|Add tags to user||Adds one or more tags to a user.|
|Remove Tags From User||Removes one or more tags from a user.|
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!
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!

Let the Most Advanced Zapier Integration for eLearning do the Work
Let the Zapier integration do repetitive work — instead of you. This includes tasks such as creating new records into applications and systems, extracting, copying across, compiling, and so much more!
While LearnWorlds has 15 triggers, 6 actions (including search capabilities), our competitors with a Zapier integration average at 7 triggers and 3 actions (aka the half of what LearnWolds can offer you). Why settle?
When you let zaps do these types of repetitive, high-volume tasks, course creators are freed to focus on the things they do best and enjoy more: producing content, and interacting with students, or onboarding new clients.
Your school will gain in productivity, efficiency, and resilience. It’s no wonder that LearnWorlds’ integration for Zapier is transforming the way we work.
