3/ Add your Trigger event

  • Here you should choose the tool you want to extract data from. Select Gmail if you want to add email content as data source for instance, or Zendesk to upload new tickets.
  • Then follow the flow from App & event, to Trigger and Test, and validate.

4/ Add your Action event

  • To do so, search for Dust among Zapier integrations:

  • In the Accounttab, follow the instructions to connect Zapier with your Dust account: you will need your Workspace ID (which can be found in your Dust tab URL, right after dust.tt/w/), as well as your Dust API key, which can be found in *Build > Developer Tools > API Keys > Create an API Key*

  • In the Actiontab, you’ll be prompted to fill the following fields:
    • Folder name: put here the name of the folder you created in Step 1/
    • Document ID: this will be the title of your document in the Dust Folder
    • Document Content: put here the content you want to extract to Dust (this will be the content of your document in the Dust Folder)

5/ Run the Tests, and Publish your Zap

You’re all set!

Once launched, new content in the Trigger will automatically be loaded as a new text file in your Folder. You can now select it as a Data Source in the Actions & Data Sources tab when you create or edit an assistant.
