Zapier Integration

Zapier makes it easy to connect your web services – like Evernote, MailChimp, Gmail and now also OneAll – together, saving time and improving productivity.

By linking services together, you can automate tasks – such as adding users to a MailChimp subscriber list after they have logged in with Social Login. These triggers are called automatically without you having to remember to do them each time.

It’s a really efficient way of using the social network profile data that Social Login provides. More information is available in our Zapier Integration Guide.
