SimpleTix – SurveyMonkey integration.


Summary: Zapier is an online automation tool that connects your favorite apps, such as SimpleTix, SurveyMonkey, Salesforce, Gmail, Slack, MailChimp, and over 1,000 more. You can connect two or more apps to automate repetitive tasks without coding or relying on developers to build the integration. Move info between your web apps automatically, so you can focus on your most important work. It's easy enough that anyone can build their own app workflows with just a few clicks.

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

On this page choose SimpleTix 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 Salesforce with Zap we just created and then add a trigger.

7) Lets add a trigger. This is when an action is performed(Trigger) would cause a predefined task would be initiated (In Our Case, when ever anyone books a ticket, system will first search for existing contact and if available will add\update details to it or it will create a new contact in salesforce)


8) Lets make sure our tigger works by testing it. **Make Sure there is atleast one order in your event to perform this test**



Now We will integrate SurveyMonkey with our SimpleTix Zap
