Exactly like step 2, connect your SharpSpring Account to Zapier. If you have multiple clients, name your SharpSpring account appropriately so you don’t get them mixed up.
4. Map Fields from calltrackingmetrics to sharpspring
Choose the fields that are important to your business, for example: Name, Number, Email etc. In our example image you’ll see that we have a phone number with “@donotreply.com as a following text. This is because SharpSpring needs an email to create an account and usually when a customer calls in we do not receive their number. To get around this issue we added this to follow customers so we can easily refer back and update their account later on.
5. Test Your Zapier integration into SharpSpring
Test to confirm that the information you’re sending can be received into your system. Occasionally you can find errors or maybe you’ll see that your information isn’t populating the custom fields you created. Always check for best results!
