Zapier is an automation tool that lets you create interactions (called "zaps") between your Rentman account and other services. It essentially is a middle man that handles the integrations between Rentman and other services. Using Zapier is not mandatory but it can speed up the integration between Rentman and other programs. 

This Zapier integration is a full integration that is built on top of the public API. Everything that is available in the public API will be available through Zapier as a Trigger or Action. If it wasn't available in the public API previously, it will still not be possible to do via Zapier now. 

Note: Rentman support does not provide support Zapier account setup. If there's any questions about how to use Zapier, please refer to their support and help center

What are triggers and actions in Zapier? 

In Zapier, triggers are events that initiate an automated workflow, such as receiving a new email or creating a new project.  Actions, on the other hand, are tasks that Zapier performs automatically in response to these triggers.

Essentially, triggers start the process, while actions are the steps taken in response to those triggers.

What can I use Zapier for? 

Use cases are only limited by your creativity and the available actions/triggers. Here are some examples of workflows you can create with this integration: 

  • When a Rentman project is made:
    • Create Google Drive folder
    • Create Slack channel or Telegram group
    • Add people to this group/channel
    • Post message with details in this group/channel
    • Sync tasks between Rentman and Monday/Asana
    • Sync contacts between Hubspot and Rentman
    • Send slack message when repair is created
  • Copy over files from Rentman to Drive/Dropbox
  • Sync crewmember appointments and availability with any 3rd party apps.
  • Sync with additional accounting software such as Visma, Dext, Exact and more!
