Getting Started with Zapier

How to integrate Next Tech with hundreds of other apps using Zapier.

Accessing the Next Tech Zapier App

Our Zapier app is currently in Beta, so you'll need us to send you an invite to it on Zapier. Just let us know you're interested and we'll get you added right away!

Once you have access to the Zapier app, you can create one for three different types of events:

New User Activation

This event triggered anytime a new user signs up on your account, either directly on Next Tech or via an embedded lesson.

It can be useful to pipe this data to an email drip campaign, your sales CRM, or a Google Sheets spreadsheet for later viewing.

A raw sample of this data is below:

"email": "",
"first_name": "Codey",
"last_name": "Costa",
"user_uid": "kd8rotk4-3252-34f2-gre3-jkekt9dlfksl"

Lesson Step Completed

This event is triggered when a user completes a step in one of your lessons. It contains valuable data for measuring the user's speed to complete the lesson, number of attempts, and their overall course progress.

You can use this data to highlight areas that may be too difficult or easy in your curriculum, as discussion starters for mentors, or to measure engagement with your lessons. A raw sample of this data is below:

New Grade Created

This event is triggered when a scored grade is created for the user. It contains the current project score, the amount of time spent on the project, and the results from all tests.

You can use this data to quantify the learner's skills for future employers or to validate lesson comprehension.
