How to integrate PipeDrive with LiveAgent via Zapier
You can also try an integration via Zapier service. Zapier connects two apps to create various kinds of integrations that can help you improve your workflow. In case you don’t have an account, create one at this link. Then go to the LiveAgent + PipeDrive integrations page.
Scroll down to the Connect LiveAgent + PipeDrive section. You can combine multiple choices here, so consider what you want your integration to do. A trigger on one app will activate an action in the second app, creating an integration.
We’re going to show you an example with the options PipeDrive’s New Deal and LiveAgent’s Create Conversation. Your setup might differ from this guide but it generally stays the same except for a few detailed fields no matter what options you pick. When you’re done selecting, click on the blue continue button.
The first part of the setup is easy. You just need to log in to your PipeDrive account, confirm the selected trigger and test it.
Log in and confirm the action. The setup in our integration requires us to fill in the recipient and sender email addresses, email subject and the body of the message among other fields. There are also some non-required fields but you can opt to fill them out to specify the message. Continue and test the integration when you’re done.
That’s it, the process is done and your integration will be active when you turn on the Zap. Check your LiveAgent for new messages from PipeDrive.
