How can you use it?
Besides LiveAgent’s native integrations, we have Zapier integrations. Zapier integrations use triggers and action to connect two apps. A trigger event that happens in one application will activate an action in the second one. You can choose your own triggers and actions, and you can also create more than one. Zapier is great because it allows you to specify what exactly you want your software to do.
Let’s say you want to utilize Trello for tracking new leads. You can connect Zapier with your LiveAgent account, and set up a custom trigger that performs a desired action. For example, if a prospective customer sends you an e-mail that is connected to your LiveAgent dashboard, their information will be automatically pulled into your Trello board. Once in Trello, you can organize your leads however you wish.
