How to integrate ManyChat with LiveAgent via Zapier
Follow this guide to seamlessly connect ManyChat’s Facebook and Messenger capabilities. With Zapier, you can choose separate Messenger or other triggers and actions to connect these two apps and improve your workflow with customer support and Facebook Messenger.
The process of integrating two apps requires no coding experience and it can be done in a matter of minutes. Zapier will explain and lead you through all the steps in the process. The first step is to log into your Zapier account. If you don’t have one, you can create it at this link. You can then proceed to the LiveAgent + ManyChat integration page.
Scroll down on the page and you will see a trigger and action selection. A trigger works as a trigger for your chosen action. That means if something happens in one software a trigger will occur and activate the action happening in the second integrated software. The triggers and actions can be set both ways between software or even within a single software.
Decide which trigger and action would you like to set. You can integrate the software with more triggers and actions anytime if you want to. As a showcase, we picked ManyChat to trigger New Tagged User and LiveAgent action Create Conversation. Any user that gets tagged on Facebook will trigger a conversation action in your help desk. You can create more connections when you need to, so pick your first one and click the blue button Connect LiveAgent + ManyChat.
A configuration of your ManyChat trigger will open up. You need to select your account and fill out the details to make sure the trigger will work. When you’re done, we recommend you to test it out to see if it works.
When you’re done with Manychat, all that’s left to do is to set up an action. Make sure you fill out the required fields. In case you want to specify the action even further, there is an option to fill out non-required fields too.
Now all you have to do is make a final test and see if the integration works. In case you run into some trouble, Zapier will offer you a handy troubleshooting guide that will help you solve the problem. If the test runs successfully, your integration is ready and you can test it live.
