To use Make to connect and Close CRM, you will need:

Create a New Lead in Close CRM after each new call

  1. Sign up for a Make account. If you already have one, log in.
  2. From the Make dashboard, click Create a new scenario.
  3. Name your Scenario. An example could be "Connect to Close CRM."
  4. Click the giant + sign. Use the search bar, type in "" and select "", then "Watch New Calls" from the menu.
  5. Connect your account.
    1. You'll need to add your API key when prompted. You can get your API key in your Call Dashboard under Integrations. Click here for further instructions on how to connect to Make.

  9. Map your fields from the module into the Close CRM record fields to meet your business needs. You can have any fields you would like, but to get started we recommend:
    • Name
    • Phone Number
    • Email
    • Description (you can link the full call summary in this field)
    Your scenario will have fields that match those of your Close CRM configuration. They may differ from the screenshot below.
  10. Once you finish mapping your fields, select "Ok."
  11. Turn your scenario on (or save it if it's already on).

All your calls will now be added as new records in Close CRM.
