Introducing myCred Zapier 2.0

Home / Blog / Introducing myCred Zapier 2.0

We’re excited to announce that myCred has made major improvements in the myCred Zapier add-on and launched its version 2.0 for users. Now you don’t need to manually hook myCred events in the Zapier account, instead, we have uploaded the myCred app at Zapier to automate the myCred Zapier add-on utility. 

MyCred-Zapier

myCred Zapier 2.0 provides you the perfect way to integrate myCred with services that are not supported via official add-ons. You can set up actions on Zapier once it’s connected to your website and the myCred Zapier plugin via an API key. 

You can add five trigger events using myCRED Zapier:

  • Earned Points – Triggers when a user earns points.
  • Deducted Points – Triggers when a user loses points.
  • Earned Badges – Triggers when a user earns a badge.
  • Earned Ranks – Triggers when a user achieves a rank.
  • Lost Ranks – Triggers when a user loses a rank.

Log in to your Zapier account and create a Zap. Zaps allow you to send data between Zapier and myCred.
