Occasionally, you may find it useful to authorize other apps and third party integrations to work with with Burner.
This can enable you to accomplish complex tasks that integrate two or more systems.
Please keep in mind that this advanced functionality depends on these two complex systems working in harmony. When the systems we manage experience issues, we track and update them on the Known Issues page as we work to address them. Please check there first if you're having trouble, and then email firstname.lastname@example.org if the problem persists.
Zapier allows you to trigger actions in other apps. Zapier call these "Zaps."
For example, you can create a push button in Zapier that turns your Burner's ringer on or off via a mouse click in your browser.
Or you can hook Burner up to a Google Sheet for a variety of automations.
You can make simple Zaps or complex ones—don't be afraid to be creative! Visit Burner in the Zapbook, or follow these steps to get started.
