    2. Connecting More information on connecting your account can be found here.
      Connect your account
  7. Customize the Zap to meet your business needs.
If it's your first time building a Zap, review the basics of creating Zaps to get started. You're not limited to a single action. Try using filters, formatting, and other advanced Zapier actions.

Follow these instructions on setting up and testing the WPForms trigger.

You must have a form created that includes a telephone number field for the ' Call Someone Zap' to work correctly. It's recommended that the telephone number field on your form be mandatory as the Zap will not work without it.
  1. Test the Zap.
  2. In the upper right, click to toggle the switch ON to turn on your Zap. Once your Zap is turned on, it will initiate an Outbound Call from when a new form is submitted.
