For example, You can create a trigger within Zapier for your Events on SimpleTix. Imagine someone books single or multiple tickets for your event. Zapier trigger would take entries of those booking like First\Last Name, Email, Phone, Event Name, Date and a lot more and add it automatically to your desired Excel sheet on your google docs. It lets you focus on most important work while also making sure that most of the data entry task are automated.

Let’s see how to create such triggers on Zapier for your SimpleTix events.

Now let's make our Zap.

2. For the Trigger app, choose SimpleTix (type it into the box to quickly find it)

3. Then choose the trigger action and click Save + Continue

4. If this is the first time you have used SimpleTix with Zapier, click Connect a New Account

4. a.) Now in a new tab, log into your site. Go to Setting & Options > Settings > Plugins

4. b.) Paste this into the Zapier page, then click Yes, Continue.

5) Now click Test Account to ensure it's working.

6) Wait for it to say "Account is working", then click Save + Continue.

Now We integrate Constant Contact with Zap we just created and then add a trigger.

7) Search and look for Constant Contact. 

8) A good practice is to first look for an existing contact and update it. If an existing contact is not found then system should create one. We need a unique identifier for customers as name can be same between two individuals.We suggest email should be unique identifier as that would always be different even if the name is same. 

9) System needs to know which account on Constant contact to connect to, This steps lets us to connect an existing Constant Contact account and test it to confirm if it is working fine.

10) This is where we set  email to be a unique identifier to search and add\update existing accounts. 

11) Make sure there should be at least one order for system to perform test by sending details from Simpletix to Constant Contact.

12) System will test and confirm if everything is working fine or not.

13)  Also make sure that your Zap is switched On on Dashboard.

14)  We now create a test order to see if new contact is added\updated in System or not.
