Your Zapier is now properly connected to your CloudTalk Account.
CloudTalk Zapier Triggers
CloudTalk Zapier App triggers allow you to trigger a Zap whenever something happens in your CloudTalk. CloudTalk currently allows you to use two triggers.
You can New Call in order to take action when a call is made via your CloudTalk. You will be able to utilize all relevant call data (e.g. phone numbers, agent, call duration, call tags, call notes, link to a recording and more). Typically this trigger is used to log your CloudTalk calls to your system.
Secondly, you can use New Contact trigger in order to tie an action to a CloudTalk contact being created / updated. You can use all relevant contact data like name, phone number, email, company, etc. Typically, this trigger is used in order to synchronise your CloudTalk contacts to 3rd party system of your choice.
CloudTalk Zapier Actions
Zapier actions let you create and modify data in CloudTalk, when triggered from your 3rd party system.
You can Create or Update Contact in CloudTalk with attributes populated from your 3rd party system trigger. Typically, you want to use this action when you want to synchronise contacts from your system into CloudTalk.
Additionally you can Create or Update Activity for any contact in CloudTalk. Typically you want to use this action when you log tickets / orders from your system to CloudTalk, so that they are visible to your agents when a customer calls your call centre.
