Step 3. Click the "Connect an Account" button to give Zapier access to your StoryChief account. Click on "Continue" to go to the next step.
Step 4. Choose an event from the event list. This is what will trigger the Zap.
Step 5. Zapier will now retrieve an example story to test your Zap with. Click on "Continue".
Step 6. Search for the app that you want to use. For this example, we are going to choose "Google Calendar". The actions present depend on the app you have selected. Pick the one that you desire and click on "Continue". You will then be asked to sign in to that app.
Step 7. You can now tell Zapier what data to use. We can choose a field from StoryChief by clicking on the + icon. It will then populate it with example data. Click on "Continue".
Step 8. Click on "Send Test". If you are happy with your Zap you can save it and turn it on. To enable the Zap, click on "Publish". Now whenever the criteria are met, your Zap will activate and complete the workflow that you have defined.
