Google Calendar is an online scheduling tool.
If you want to respond to appointment entries in Quentn, you must connect Google Calendar and Quentn with the help of Zapier. For this, you will need at least a Quentn Basic account.
Step 1: Create contact field with the type "Date" in Quentn
If you want to transfer data with or without time to Quentn, e.g. to update opportunities in the sales stage and to keep track of the appointments, you first need a contact field with the type "Date". Proceed as follows:
- In the menu, click on Contacts -> Contact Fields and then on Add new field.
- Give the field a title. Under Description you can make notes.
- Determine the field "Date", then determine whether it is a date with or without time.
- Click next to save your field.
Step 2: Create Zap and configure a trigger
Log into the Zapier website and create a new Zap. Select Google Calendar as the trigger and also select which event you want to react to. Then connect your Google Calendar account and follow the instructions in Zapier to finish configuring the trigger.
Step 3: Create or update contact
Select Quentn as the action app and choose the action "Create or update contact".
Step 4: Connect Zap to Quentn
Now connect Quentn with Zapier under "Connect account". A new window will open when click on, where you can connect your Zap with your Quentn account. There are two values that you need to inform Zapier of: the API URL and the API key. You can find both values in your Quentn account under My account -> API info -> Zapier API. (Instructions here) Copy both values into the corresponding fields in Zapier and follow the further instructions.
Step 5: Select fields
After you have selected your Quentn host in Zapier, you will come to "Set up Quentn contact". Here you can transfer the data from the appointment tool. Two things are important: Primary email and your recently created Contact field with the type "Date".
Click on "Continue" and "Finish", then name your Zap and publish it.
Only respond to registration
Step 5: Create tag (optional)
Go to Quentn and create a new tag. You can do that under the menu item Contact tags. Click on the button "Add tag" and name it, e.g "Appointment consultation".
Step 6: Select fields
Now go back to Zapier. After you have selected your host, you will come to "Set up Quentn contact". Here you can transfer the data from the appointment tool. Two things are important: Primary email and Add tags.
Click on "Primary email" which is to the right of the list icon, and select the email address.
In the "Add tags", choose the tag which you have just created.
Click on "Continue" and "Finish", name your Zap and publish it.
Step 7: Create a campaign in Quentn
Create a new campaign in Quentn and drag the event element "Tag changed" to the Campaign Builder. After double-clicking on the element, enter the new tag "Appointment consultation" (or the name of the tag you just created). The campaign will start for those who receive the new tag.
Now connect the email confirmation element with the previous element so that your new contacts can complete the double opt-in process. Contacts who are already in your database will automatically skip the element, so that they don't need to confirm their email again.
You can then start a sequence. Of course, the campaign will not work until you have published it.
