Setting Up Zapier Integrations

The Shortcut Zapier integration currently allows you to create Shortcut stories from a defined Zapier Trigger. Follow these instructions to set up the integration:

 Linking Shortcut App to Zapier

In Shortcut, click on your profile icon on the top right, navigate Settings > API Tokens and create a token for the Zapier integration. Copy this token.

You'll be able to format your created Stories however you want. Story Name and Project are the only required fields but you may also choose to specify Epic, add a description and choose story type. 

Once completed, you will be prompted to Test & Continue the Zap.

This test should have successfully created a story via Zapier. Go on check it out on Shortcut!

Lastly, we now need to turn on this zap so that this happens automatically. Simply click on Retest & Continue after the test has been performed:
