Zapier Integration

Getting started with Zapier

Fantastical offers integration with Zapier so that you can create Zaps to help with your Openings and Proposals. A free Zapier account will allow you to access this feature and you can create your account, if needed, on Zapier's website.

To connect Fantastical to Zapier, you will need an API key that you must generate directly in your Flexibits Account. Be ready to add your API key to Zapier, as you can only view it once when you generate it.

IMPORTANT: If you regenerate or delete your API key in the future, all existing Fantastical Zaps will stop working.

Fantastical Triggers

Each Zap consists of two steps: Triggers and Actions. Fantastical currently offers three triggers when creating a Fantastical Zap.

Zapier Triggers

  • Appointment Requested: Triggers when someone requests an appointment in Openings. This will trigger immediately for both manual and automatic confirmations in Openings.
  • Appointment Confirmed: This triggers when an Openings appointment is confirmed. For manual confirmations, this is when the owner manually approves the request. For automatic confirmations, this is when the request is approved by Fantastical. If no version of Fantastical is currently running when using automatic confirmation, the Zap will be delayed until Fantastical is opened and the request is approved.
  • Proposal Confirmed: This triggers when any Proposal is confirmed.

Creating a Fantastical Zap trigger

You will create and manage your Fantastical Zaps directly on Zapier's website. To get started, log in to your Zapier account and select the button to + Create Zap.

  • If appointments are found, you will receive a list of those appointments and can then choose one example for your template.

  • If appointments are not found you can create an appointment or choose Skip Test.

This completes the trigger section for your Zap. You will need to continue to the second step of adding an action to your Zap before it can be used. Fantastical currently does not offer any actions, so you will not have that as an option when creating your Zap action.
