How to configure Zaps using Grain to automate your workflow

Updated over a week ago

Grain integrates with Zapier, allowing you to automate the repetitive tasks of moving the information captured via Grain—Highlights, Stories, or Recordings—to any of your favorite tools!

Step 1: Log in to or Sign up for Zapier

Log into your Zapier account. If you don’t have an account, sign up for a free Zapier account.


Step 2: Create a Zap!

If you’re new to Zapier, try some of the pre-made examples here. It’s the easiest way to get started.

Set up a custom workflow

  • Click “Create Zap”

  • You need to set a trigger for your Zap. Type "Grain" in the Choose a Trigger 'App Event' search box and select the Grain app.


  • Select a Trigger event from the list based on what you intend to achieve. For instance, if you want to send a complete recording from Grain to any of your work tools, Trigger should be “Recording Added.”


  • Once you select the trigger, you’ll be asked to choose your Grain account. Sign in to your Grain account.

  • You will be taken to the Grain website and asked to log in. Log in using your Grain account information. Then click 'Continue' in Zapier.


  • Next, you can test your Grain Trigger. When you click “Test Trigger,” Zapier will check and let you know if the trigger is working as expected.


  • Once the trigger setup is done, you’ll be able to select an Action. This is what Zapier will do when something is triggered from Grain.


  • Select the App and ‘Action Event.’ For example, if you want to email the recording, then App will be “Gmail” and Event will be “send email.”

  • Follow the rest of the steps until you get to the last window that allows you to click 'Turn on Zap.'

Step 3: Take Your Zap Live

  • Click ‘Turn on Zap’ and you should get confirmation that your new Zap is turned on and ready to go.


  • That’s it! Each time your Zap is triggered your Action will run.
