Zapier and Bookster

Use the automation tool Zapier with Bookster.

Bookster has an API that can talk to Zapier and carry out some pretty cool tasks.

In Zapier’s own words:

“Connect Your Apps and Automate Workflows”
“Easy automation for busy people. Zapier moves info between your web apps automatically, so you can focus on your most important work.”

Example: SMS booking alert

Create a “Zap” to send an SMS text message when a booking comes in.

1) Sign up to Zapier

Visit zapier.com and create an account.

2) Find your Bookster API key

In order to give Zapier permission to view your bookings, you will need you Bookster API key.

Bookster -> “account” -> API Key

Copy it and keep it somewhere safe for future use.

3) Check for new bookings and send an SMS

From within Zapier:

1) Create a Zap

2) Look for “Webhooks by Zapier”

3) Select “Retrieve Poll” with settings
