Learn how to integrate Zapier into your Factorial account

What is Zapier?

Zapier is a product that allows end users to integrate the web applications they use.  Zapier strongly focused on automation processes to save time. 

📢 With Factorial's Zapier integration, you can do many things like:

  • Importing Factorial holidays to your Google calendar
  • Exporting a list of Factorial employees to an external spreadsheet
  • Notifying yourself of new leaves pending to be approved
  • Import new hires from your favorite ATS directly to Factorial
  • and much more!

Make a Zap with Factorial

You can create a Zap using Factorial either as a source or as a destination. As a source, you can use Factorial to notify other services of new events happening at Factorial, like new employees or leaves being created.

As a destination, you can post new information to Factorial. For example, creating a new employee) in response to some event happening in another service integrated with Zapier.

 You can learn more about creating zaps in Zapier article.
