Create an Email Invitation Trigger on Zapier

Send email invitations to your respondents based on actions from other applications by connecting your Zoho Survey account with automation services like Zapier. Through this, respondents can receive feedback emails for purchasing a product on an e-commerce site, or for attending a course online.


The email invitation trigger in Zoho Survey can be set through Zapier in the Plus, Pro, and Enterprise plans

Use Cases:

As a marketing executive for an e-learning platform, your task is to email students who have finished a basic course, gathering feedback while also informing them about a discounted opportunity to enrol in an advanced course. To achieve this, utilize Zoho Survey to craft the email, then connect it via Zapier to your organization's CRM account, which holds student leads. This email celebrates their course completion and provides a special promotional code for the advanced course at an exclusive discounted rate.
As the owner of a cafe, your objective is to send feedback emails to customers who have recently experienced the new 'Zozo Burger'. To accomplish this, create a Zoho Survey email and link it via Zapier to your POS system, housing customer data for the burger purchasers. The email expresses gratitude for choosing the new burger, encourages feedback, and provides a sneak peek into an upcoming combo offer at your establishment as a token of appreciation.
