Export data from Flokzu
Many times, it is vital to export information from the data generated through Flokzu process instances, as well as to connect that information to external apps or servers. For this reason, we have multiple ways in which the data from your Flokzu forms can be exported:
Through Zapier (zapier.com)
Through Web Services

Create a custom report and schedule its delivery at a set frequency.
Using our API, you can make requests about specific information at any time.
Using webhooks configuration.
Exporting information from Flokzu can be really useful in case you want to make a security copy of your information, as well as to analyze it or create more advanced reports.
To send information from Flokzu to another app, you must select Flokzu as the trigger app and then the Flokzu-Zapier configuration will depend on the action you want to perform. Basically, it allows you to map Flokzu fields with items or elements from the target app (the one that will receive the information).
