Setting up an Integration using Zapier

Integrate your reservation system with Fotaflo by sending reservation data through Zapier. This integration provides a more seamless photo delivery experience for your guests.

This guide helps you integrate your reservation system with Fotaflo by sending reservation data using webhooks.

When a webhook reservation is sent, Fotaflo will parse the request and store

  1. the name and contact information of the guests
  2. the date and time the tour starts and ends

It will then create a label for that reservation using the dates, times and contact names provided. A tour guide using the Fotaflo app to take photos of guests will be able to select any labels for tours which begin within 24 hours (12 hours in the past to 12 hours in the future). Once one or more labels are selected they can continue the tour and any photos taken will be labelled when uploaded to Fotaflo.

Finally, if automated deliveries are enabled, the photos associated with a reservation label will be delivered.

Deliveries are automatically sent according to the following:

  • If your location does giveaway deliveries, within 5 minutes of the first photo uploaded to that label after the tour start time.
