Connect Beekeeper to hundreds of other apps with Zapier
Zapier lets you connect Beekeeper to 5,000+ other web services. Automated connections called Zaps, set up in minutes with no coding, can automate your day-to-day tasks and build workflows between apps that otherwise wouldn't be possible.
Each Zap has one app as the Trigger, where your information comes from and which causes one or more Actions in other apps, where your data gets sent automatically.

Things to Keep in Mind
- Zapier makes calls between Beekeeper and other platforms every 15 minutes, so you may notice up to a 15 minute delay in the initiation of a workflow after a trigger has been put into effect.
- If you signed up with a free account with Zapier, you are restricted to 100 tasks per month. Therefore, depending on how many users you have and how often Zaps are being initiated, you may notice they stop within the month if you hit your limit of tasks. You can either upgrade your Zapier account to pay for more tasks or wait for the next month for the Zaps to reactivate.
