Connect Glide with your favorite apps to automate your work
Make is a visual platform that lets you design, build, and automate anything - from simple tasks to complex workflows - in minutes. With Make, you can send information between Glide and thousands of apps to enjoy enhanced team productivity and customer satisfaction.
It’s fast and easy to use, visually intuitive and requires zero coding expertise.
If you're totally new to Make, we recommend you read this article first.
1. Getting Started
In order for Make to automate tasks, we have to first create a "scenario." A "scenario" is a series of steps (or "modules") that tell how data from Glide should be transferred and transformed to any third party apps.
A basic Scenario has two steps:
- a Trigger
- and an Action Need a kick-starter? Make has some pre-built Glide integrations. Check them out here.
2. Integrating Glide & Make
- First, click Create a new scenario within Make's Dashboard.
- Second, add a Trigger > select the Glide module > choose Watch New Action.
3. Create a Webhook
Once we've added the Trigger (aka. Glide module), copy the generated webhook URL.
- Click Add.
- Name your Webhook.
- And copy to clipboard the generated URL.
4. Trigger Webhook Action in Glide
In Glide, we now need to create a Trigger Webhook Action. To do this:
- Create an Action > select Trigger Webhook option.
- From secondary dropdown (seen below) > select Add new webhook.
- Paste Webhook URL > Add Name > Save.
5. Adding Data to Action
Once we have our Action ready, we can add the values we want to send to Make.
Let's say we want to send an email with a Button component. In the example below, we need to include the recipients email with two Template columns with the subject and the email body.
6. How to Send Sample Data
To set up your first Scenario, we need to send some sample data through the webhook.
- In Make, right-click on Glide's module and click Run this module only.
- Back in Glide, click the component with the configured Trigger Webhook action. Glide will then send data to Make.
7. Creating Actions In Make
In our example, we want Glide to trigger an email to be sent via Gmail. To do this:
- Add a new module by clicking on the right side of our Trigger Module.
- Select the app we want Glide to connect with (e.g. Gmail).
- Select the Action that we wish the Module to perform (e.g. Send an email).
You can add as many Actions as you like. You can do more than one at a time too and create multi-step actions.
8. Connecting Accounts
If we, for example, want to create a scenario that works with Facebook posts, we must grant access permission to Make for our Facebook profile. This same logic applies to all connected services.
Under Module Settings > click Add and follow the instructions.
If you use Gmail with a @gmail.com suffix, you may need to complete some additional steps. Learn more.
9. Adding Parameters
Once we have connected our service, we can start adding the Parameters to our Action. Choose Value instead of Type from the Parameters list.
10. Testing our Scenario
Here's how to ensure everything is working correctly:
- Click Run once on the bottom left of the scenario's window.
- Go back to Glide and run the Action (tap the configured action component).
- Once the Action is done, rename the Scenario and save it. Turn on the Action by setting the toggle button to "On" (bottom left corner).
Google Sheets as an Action
Currently, we can only use Glide as a Trigger. This means that we can't send information back to Glide. However, Make can be used to send data back to Google Sheets.
In the example below, Stripe is the Trigger and Google Sheets is the Action.
- The Trigger, Watch Events (Stripe), checks for new events, such as new payments and new customers.
- The Action, Add a Row (Google Sheets), will add a new row to Google Sheets every time new payments and new customers are created in Stripe.
The information added to the Google Sheet can then be displayed inside any connected apps.
