How to Use Semantria with Zapier

Last Updated: Jan 20, 2014 02:56PM EST
Semantria is integrated with Zapier, which allows Semantria users to connect to a growing collection of software services, including some popular services like Twitter, Gmail, DropBox, and over 250 more.
Here is a how-to guide for using Semantria with Zapier.
To use Semantria with any Zapier service, you must create two “Zaps”. Before you begin using Zapier with Semantria, make sure that you have registered a Semantria account and have received your API credentials.  Then log into your Zapier account and click "Make a New Zap".

Step 1: Use the drop down menu to select your trigger service that will send data to Semantria. In this example I want to extract information from a Google Doc.

Then Select what will trigger the Zap, I chose “Updated Spreadsheet Row”.

Next select Semantria as your action service and the action that will occur on once triggered, ie. “New Data Upload For Analysis”.

Step 2: Choose your trigger account from the drop down list or connect to a new trigger account.

Step 3: Connect to your Semantria account.

If you want to connect to a different Semantria Account you will require your API keys at this point.

Step 4: Next, filter the trigger action. I assigned the spreadsheet and worksheet in my Google Docs account that would trigger the “Updated Spreadsheet Row” action. Therefore, Zaps will only run when I update a row of this worksheet.

Step 5: Select which elements of the spreadsheet you would like Semantria to analyze. In my example I want the column with the header “Text”, which contains my content, to be analyzed by Semantria. 

I also wanted to match my source data with my output data so I used the “ID” column from my original dataset as the document ID.
If you want to use a specific configuration profile for your analysis, enter the configuration ID you wish to use if the Configuration ID field.

Step 6: Now you can test your Zap to make sure everything’s working, or you can move directly to naming your zap and turning it on.

Congratulations! You’ve made you first Zap! You're half-way done. Now that you’ve sent your content to Semantria, we need to create a Zap to get the analysis back!

Step 7: Create a new Zap and select Semantria as your trigger service, then choose an event that will trigger the Zap. Next select your action service. In this example I want to receive my results in the same Google Doc as my original Zap by creating a new spreadsheet row.
Then continue with Steps 2 and 3 in reverse order.

Step 8: If you are using a specific configuration ID for your analysis, enter it here. Otherwise, if left blank, your default configuration will be applied.

Step 9: Select the Spreadsheet and Worksheet in which you would like to view your analysis results. I chose to output my results into a new worksheet within the same spreadsheet. Also select Semantria output features that will be returned to each column or your worksheet. 

***Note: Set-up your output worksheet so that each output feature has its own column. I only wanted to extract the sentiment score; therefore I only have one output column in addition to the source ID column. 

Step 10: Now you can test you Zap or skip right to naming it and turning it on.

Alright! Now that you’ve created both Zaps you can automatically extract meaningful insight with Semantria. All that's left to do is to sit back and watch the magic happen.
