What is Zapier?
Zapier is a platform for moving data around between applications without writing code. Got a workflow that involves regularly moving/copying information from Reduct to elsewhere? Now you can automate it.
What can I do with Reduct + Zapier?
Automated connections called Zaps can automate your day-to-day tasks and build workflows between apps that otherwise wouldn't be possible. Each Zap has one app as the "Trigger", where your information comes from and which causes one or more "Actions" in other apps, where your data gets sent automatically.
You can use the Reduct-Zapier integration to set up recordings, highlights, comments, or published reels as triggers. For example:
You can post a message to Slack each time a new recording is transcribed.
You can make an Airtable base of your highlights, which will be updated as new highlights are created.
You can have Chat-GPT summarize or analyze each highlight or reel with a custom prompt, and save the results to a Google Sheet.
You can flag passages for translation with a comment, and email yourself those translations.
You can create a new page in Notion each time you publish a new reel.
and many other things!
How do I set it up?
Zapier integration is available to users on Advanced and Enterprise plans. If you are on a different plan, such as the Standard plan, you can upgrade at any time.
If you don't already have a Zapier account, sign up for a free Zapier account, and then you can jump right in.
From within Zapier, create a New Zap; you should see a screen like this:
Clicking on the “Trigger” box will bring up a search bar; type “Reduct,” and select the resulting option.
First you’ll have to choose what event you want to trigger on: new Comments, Highlights, Published Reels, or Recordings. Note that due to the way Zapier checks for new content, these triggers will run as soon as one of those items is created, and won’t re-run if they’re edited much later. That is, if you make a highlight today and then tomorrow give it the tag “Needs Review”, it won’t show up in Zapier with that tag.
After you’ve chosen your event, you’ll need to choose a project to listen to updates from. If you haven’t already shared that project, you’ll need to do that (click on the share button in the top-right, and ensure that the toggle is set to "Users with the link can join..."), and then paste a few specified parts of its URL into a window like the one below.
If everything is working, example data from your project should become visible.
Now you’re ready to add an action!
Click the Action box and search for the integration you want — in this example we’ll put highlights into a Google Sheet.
After adding the account, you can select what information from the trigger should be used; in this case we’re matching a few of the fields to columns in the spreadsheet.
Once you’re done, it’ll test the action to make sure you get the desired output, and if it looks good you’re ready to go!
