Prerequisite

You need a Zapier account first. If you don't have an account, click here to create a Zapier account.

So, let's get started.

Instructions

Step 1:

Login to your Zapier account. And then click Make a Zap! button.



Step 2:

Let's search and select Formsite as our trigger app. Next, check New Form Result as our trigger action. Then click Save + Continue button.


Step 3:

Let's link your Formsite account.

Make sure you are already login to your Formsite account.

Click Connect A New Account button.

You should see a popup window saying to allow Zapier of some permission to your Formsite account. 

Login to your Formsite account.

Take note of your Formsite API Key, Server Prefix and User directory.

Copy and paste this info to Zapier. Then click Yes, Continue button.

Then click Save + Continue button.


Step 4:

Let finish up our trigger app setup.

Go back to your Zapier setup page.

Select your Formsite Form in the select box. In our case, let's use our custom created My Form.

Then click Continue button. 

Then click Fetch & Continue button.

Lastly the Continue button.


Step 5:

Ok, let's set up our Action app. Let's search and choose ClickSend. Next select Send SMS as our action. Then click Save + Continue button.

Next, let's add your ClickSend account. Click Connect A New Account button.

There should be a popup saying to add or allow your Zapier and ClickSend account to be linked together.

Then click Save + Continue button.


Step 7:

Let's set up our SMS message.

In the To input box, enter your mobile no. This will be the recipient of the message.

In the Message input box, enter your custom message.

You can add Schedule or From fields optionally. Here, we will leave them blank at the moment.

Then click Continue button.


Step 8:

Let's finish up everything.

Click Create & Continue button.

Then the Finish button.

Lastly, name your Zap, and turn it ON


Conclusion

In this article, we learned how to connect ClickSend and Formsite. We also learned how to send an SMS via ClickSend every time we have Formsite form submission. It's pretty easy right?!

Also note that ClickSend can also do more actions, like sending a Voice message and more. Don't hesitate to try the other ClickSend actions to personalize more your integrations.
