How do I integrate Comm100 Live Chat with Zapier

Zapier is a web-based service that allows you to connect applications and automate data transfer between them. Using Zapier’s integration with Comm100, you can send live chat-related event data to different web apps or efficiently perform actions based on triggers you set up, making it easy to automate tedious tasks.

The integration is quick and easy to set up and helps Comm100 Live Chat interact with your favorite web apps such as MailChimp, Zoho CRM, Jira, Slack, Marketo, Trello, and many more. For example, you can add contacts into your Zoho CRM system when a chat ends, send Slack notifications when a chat begins, or update contact information in HubSpot when an offline message is submitted. The possibilities are nearly endless!

Within Comm100, there are multiple ready-made templates to help you set up the integration. Currently, the following events can be used to trigger actions within applications you have connected using Zapier:

  • Chat Requested: When a visitor submits a chat request.
  • Chat Ended: When a visitor ends a chat.
  • Chat Wrapped Up: When an agent wraps up a chat.
  • Chat Started: When a visitor and agent begin chatting.
  • Chat Transferred: When a chat is transferred from one agent to another.
  • Offline Message Submitted: When a visitor leaves an offline message.

This article will guide you through the process of integrating Comm100 with your web applications using Zapier.
