Bigin Integration | Add a Related List in Bigin - Zoho Forms

Adding a Related List

Related Lists are records that are associated with the parent record. For example, a Deal has Notes, Tasks, Events, and calls associated with it. These associated records are Related Lists.

When you push form submissions to Bigin from Zoho Forms, you can also add records associated with each submission as a related list in Bigin. For example, a Task can be added as a related list to a Deal. 

Integration Setup

Before adding Related Lists from Zoho Forms, you must first link your form to a Bigin module to Add a New Record. The Related List configuration appears only after you link your form with a primary module. 
To add a related list in Bigin,

  1. Navigate to the Integrations tab and click Bigin.
  2. Integrate your form with a Bigin module to Add a New record and save your settings. 
  3. Click the Related List tab. Pick a related list associated with the module selected in the previous step. 
  4. Map all the mandatory Bigin fields to the corresponding Zoho Forms fields.
  5. To map more fields, click + Add Fields.
  6. Click Integrate.

    Trigger Actions

    While adding related lists to Bigin, you can also choose to trigger certain actions.

    Trigger Actions in Bigin

    Workflow: This option triggers Workflow Rules configured in Bigin while pushing data from Zoho Forms. 

    Attachment: This option pushes attachments associated with each form entry to Bigin. The following attachments can be pushed from Zoho Forms to Bigin:

    • Signatures
    • File upload/ Image Upload field attachments
    • PDF of form submissions 

    Upsert Record:  The Upsert Record option lets you update existing records in Bigin with new values. Upon selecting this option, if a record with the identical value exists in Bigin, it will be updated with the new values. If not, a new record will be created in Bigin. You can arrange fields in the order in which upsert should happen. 

    Upsert Record in Bigin
    Here's how upsert works:

    For example, if you have an  Email  field before a  Company  field. When a form is submitted with the Company as  Zylker  and Email as,

  1. First, it's checked if the email exists in Bigin. If it does, then the mapped fields get updated to the record associated with that email address.
  2. In case the email address does not exist in Bigin,  it's checked if the company Zylker exists. If it does, then the mapped fields get updated to the record associated with that company name.
  3. If none of the field values exists, then a new record with all the mapped details is created in Bigin.
  4. You can also choose to overwrite existing values in Bigin with empty field values from Zoho Forms or exclude empty values while upserting a record.
  5. Click Done and save your preferences. 

Tag Records: This option lets you add a tag to the records that are pushed to Bigin. You can create a new tag or use values from a form submission to tag records. You can also enter existing tag names created in Bigin and the records will be associated with that tag. 
Note: If the record is updated, the new tag will also be applied to the record.
Approval This option pushes form entries to your Bigin approval list instead of adding them to your module. You can manually approve these records in Bigin to add them to a module and discard the spam entries.
