Use Zapier to export new revealed applicant information to a Google Sheet

New to Zapier? Learn about Zapier and how it can help you export revealed applicant information in About Zapier.

Follow these steps to set up a Zap to automatically export revealed applicants' application information or application data to a Google Sheet.

If you are using the free Zapier plan, your Zap will run every 15 minutes. When the Zap runs, if there is new applicant data to export, that run will count as a task. You are allotted 100 tasks per month in the free Zapier plan.

Zapier also has additional levels of service if you need features beyond the free plan. See the Zapier website for details.

Before you begin

  • If you don't already have a Zapier account, you can create one while setting up your Zap.
  • You must have at least one revealed applicant in SimplyHired before you can set up your Zap.

To set up your Zap, you can follow the steps outlined below, or you can view this quick video tutorial:

Set up the Zap

  2. Add column headers (also called fields), to a worksheet in the Google Sheet file. You should add a field for every piece of applicant data you want to export from SimplyHired. The fields in Google Sheets can be named anything you want.

    Available fields from SimplyHired include the following:

    • First Name
    • Last Name
    • Email
