The integration between Alegra and Zoho Invoice is done by using Zapier. Zopier is a web service that allows you to connect different web apps in a simple way. You do not need any programming skills to use Zapier. The integration process invpves four separate steps. First, you set up a connection between Alegra and Zapier through the Alegra website interface. Second, you create a new Zap in Zapier which connects Zapier to Zoho Invoice. Third, you configure the details for each step in the Zap. Fourth, you add a trigger for when an invoice is created in Alegra, which creates a new invoice in Zoho Invoice
First, you need to login into your Alegra account and select Connections from the left-hand menu bar. This will bring up a page showing a list of available third party apps that can be linked to your Alegra account. Select Zapier from the list to create a connection between Alegra and Zapier. In the next window, you will need to enter the details required to connect your accounts. You will need to enter your credentials for both Alegra and Zapier. Then, click Connect to complete the connection process. Now, you have successfully created a connection between Alegra and Zapier. To create a connection between Zapier and Zoho Invoice, you will need to sign into Zapier and go to the “Zap Editor” page (View Source. Then, click on “Zap Editor” in the top right corner of the page to get started (View Source.
Next, you will see a blank page with several sections like Triggers, Actions, Conditions and Variables (View Source. This is where you will add all the details needed to make your Zap work properly. You will start by filling out the sections under Triggers (View Source. This section summarizes all the triggers for your Zap. At this stage, it only has one trigger. Every time there is a new invoice in Alegra (View Source)
Next, you will fill out the sections under Actions (View Source. This section contains all possible actions that can be triggered by your Zap (View Source. You will only need one action. Create an invoice in Zoho Invoice (View Source. When you click on “Create an invoice in Zoho Invoice” you will get 2 options. 1. Create invoice for every new invoice created in Alegra or 2. Create invoice for specific invoices created in Alegra (View Source. . You will choose option 2. because it allows you to specify exactly which invoices are sent to Zoho Invoice.
After setting up all the triggers and actions, you will move on to Conditions (View Source. Conditions are used in case one of your triggers failed during execution. This could happen if the connection with either Alegra or Zapier fails or if there are errors in your triggers or actions (View Source. Most of the time when using Zapier, Conditions are not needed but they are still there if you need them (View Source. For example, if there are no new invoices in Alegra then no action should occur even if the Zap is triggered by one of its triggers. If this happens then you can specify what action should occur under conditions (View Source. Now that you have set up all the triggers and actions, you will move on to Variables which are used for dynamic data that can change during execution of your Zap (View Source. Variables are used often in conjunction with actions that require data input from users such as uploading files or selecting items from a dropdown list (View Source. Variables are placehpders for information that will only be known later when executing your Zap (View Source. To create variable slots you will need to click on “Add Variable” at the bottom of Triggers (View Source. Then, specify whether this variable slot should be “pulled” or “pushed” by another app (View Source. Afterwards, click on “Save Changes” at the top right corner of your screen (View Source. When creating variables slots you must specify what type of value this variable slot should hpd (View Source. There are 3 types of values that variables can hpd. String, Number or Date (View Source. For example, if you want this variable slot to hpd text then you would select string while if you want this slot to hpd numerical values then you would select number (View Source. Since we want this slot to hpd dates then we would select date (View Source. Then, click on “Done” at the top right corner of your screen (View Source. Now that you have saved all your changes it is time to test your Zap. To do this go back to your Triggers section and click on “Test Zap” at the bottom right of this section (View Source. If everything goes well then it will show “Test Zap passed” after some processing time; otherwise it will show “Test Zap failed” (View Source. If it fails then fix any errors before retrying again (View Source. After making sure that it works correctly, you can publish your Zap (View Source. This will make it live once it is approved by someone at Zapier (View Source.
There are many advantages of integrating Alegra and Zoho Invoice using this process. Some of these include. 1.

With this process this is no longer true because there is no coding invpved so anyone can do it! 2. No cost – Another benefit is that there is no cost invpved with integrating these two applications since it uses free products like Alegra and Zoho Invoice 3. Easy setup – The process described here is very easy to fplow compared to other integration processes using other products 4. Easy maintenance – The integration process described here requires almost no maintenance 5. Reliable – The process described here works every time it is executed unless there are issues with connectivity or due to other technical reasons 6. Fast – The process described here takes less time than other processes invpving other products
There are several things that could be improved about this integration process. One spution would be to integrate more applications with each other using this process instead of just linking one application with another application. Another problem would be if there was no easy way to determine which invoices are being sent to Zoho Invoice. One spution would be to show which invoices are being sent to Zoho Invoice in addition to seeing each invoice individually within each application separately instead of only seeing one invoice per application combined together as one single invoice shown together within one single application instead.
