Do you want to get rid of some daily tasks? Now that CHEQROOM integrates with Zapier, automate your tasks to have even more time to do what you love.

What is Zapier?

Zapier is a service that automates your workflow and connects different apps and services via Zaps. It connects with more than 4,000 apps with both free and paid plans.

How does it work?

A Zap typically consists of two parts:

  1. The trigger: This is an event that triggers a Zap. A trigger is the "When this happens." For example: whenever you add an item in CHEQROOM.

  2. The action: This is the event triggered by a Zap. The action is the then "do that." For example: Send an email.

Every Zap follows the same structure:

When this happens

⬇️

Do that.

Once your Zap is live, the action steps will run every time the trigger event happens. No need to think about it anymore.

Send a notification on Slack when a reservation is due for Checkout

If you want to automatically receive a notification on your communication tool when a reservation is due for Checkout, have a look at the steps below:

  1. The Trigger

    • Once you are logged in to Zapier, select ‘Create Zap’.
