Connect your Podia account
If you haven't connected your Podia account in Zapier, follow the steps on Connecting Podia to Zapier.
Configure your Podia trigger in Zapier
To configure your new trigger, click on Make a Zap! in Zapier and select Podia as the trigger app.
You should have your Podia account connected and tested from the previous steps. Once you have confirmed that the account is successfully connected, select the New Email List Subscription trigger and click Continue:
Pick the appropriate Podia account (setup in the Connect your Podia account step above) and click Continue.
You should now be under Edit Options section, which will allow you to subscribe to any or a specific email list in Podia. The Email List option is optional and the trigger will be sent for all email list subscriptions in the Podia account, if left unselected.
However, if you would like to subscribe to a specific (either site or pre-launch course) email list, you can select it from the dropdown, as shown below.
If you would like to clear the option for the email list, select the Clear Current Choice and the default value of 'Any' will be selected again. Once you have selected the email list, click on Continue.
You should now be able to Test This Step with sample data from your account. Select any one of the records as the test data for your action
🗒 NOTE: If you do not have any data in your account or retrieving the data is taking longer than a few seconds, you can click on Skip This Step. This will load generic sample data for you to test with your Zap action.
Configure your Action for the New Email List Subscription trigger
You can select over 1000s of integrations from Zapier to push the email list subscription data that is triggered from Podia. For this example, we will use the Podia trigger to send a personal Slack bot message.
To set up the integration, select Slack as the action app and select Send Direct Message as the Slack Action.
Make sure your Slack account is connected and verify by clicking on the Test button.
You can now edit the template to send a message to your Slack account. Select your Username from the dropdown and customize your Message Text with the template fields available from the sample data previously setup. Set the optional fields, if needed.
Testing the New Email List Subscription Zap
To test your new Zap, navigate to the email list subscription page (either on the site or a pre-launch course page) and subscribe to the email list with a new email.
You can get to your Podia's site email subscription form by clicking on your name in the top right corner of the Podia app. Make sure the newsletter section has been enabled in the Podia Editor.
If you would like to test your pre-launch course email list subscriptions:
- Click on Products in the Podia app menu
- Follow the link on your pre-launch product by clicking on Edit
- Make sure the product is set to Pre-launch and click on Preview to navigate to the pre-launch course
- Enter a new email to sign up for the email list
Once you have confirmed your email for either of the email list subscriptions, you should get a slack bot message delivered directly to your account with all the details that were set up in the Setup Preview section. 🔥
