FileCloud Integration with Zapier


Zapier is a tool that allows you to connect apps to automate tedious tasks.  Zapier offers integration with nearly 750 apps  to create automated workflows called as "Zaps".  The workflows ("Zaps") are created by mixing a Trigger with actions (Single or Multistep) that are available on your favorite apps.  One can link a trigger (Ex: New email attachment in Gmail) from one app to an action (Ex: Upload the attachment to FileCloud Folder) in another app. Using FileCloud - Zapier integration, you can connect  FileCloud with many popular apps like Gmail, Trello, Bitbucket, OneDrive, Dropbox, Evernote and many others. The opportunities are simply endless. 

For instance, you can automatically upload new Gmail attachments to a FileCloud Folder (or) create a  new folder in FileCloud for every Trello Board you create.  Checkout this video for more information.Steps
