Building the Zap
Let's look at how to build the zap to Create A Job in Táve when a New Acuity Scheduling Appointment is created.
In your Zapier account, use the Create Zap button:
Setting up the Trigger
Choose Acuity Scheduling as the app and New Appointment as the Trigger Event:
You'll then want to connect to your Acuity account and select your Calendar and Appointment Type:
Next, run a test trigger to pull in event data that you'll use when setting up the action.
Setting up the Action
Select Táve as the app and Create a Job as the Action Event:
You'll then want to connect to your Táve account. If you haven't already connected your Táve account you can manage your connected accounts here:

Once you've connected your Táve account you're ready to set up the Action.
When setting up your action, you'll first want to set up your Contact details, mapping these to your Acuity fields:
You'll be able to use the Additional Contact Fields and Contact Custom Fields drop downs to map Acuity fields to additional Contact Profile fields in Táve:
Next you'll want to set up your Job and Event details. You can use the Additional Job Fields and Job Custom Fields drop downs to map Acuity fields to additional Job fields in Táve, including Brand, Lead Source, Lead Status, etc.
**IMPORTANT** When setting up your Event details for this Zap you must use the Datetime Acuity field for Event Start (Date & Time). Use the Additional Event Fields drop down to enter Event Start (Time) and Event End (Time) - mapping these to the Time of Appointment and Ending Time of Appointment Acuity fields.
If Event Type is left blank your Primary Session for this Job Type will be used.
**IMPORTANT** You must make sure that your Time Format in Acuity Scheduling is set to 24 hour. You'll find this in your Acuity account in Customise Appearance - Appearance - Time Format:
You'll then want to enter your Timezone (this field is required and you can use the search box to easily find the correct one). You can also use the Additional Event Fields drop down to map additional Acuity fields to Táve:
Once you've completed the set up, you can then Test your Zap. This will send a test Job to your Táve account! Remember to purge any test leads when you're done.
You're now ready to Turn on your Zap!🥳🥳
