As a pioneer in the SaaS ecosystem for training, assessment, and competency management, Cloud Assess consistently strives to provide optimal solutions to its users. In a move to enhance efficiencies and streamline processes, we are thrilled to discuss the integration of Zapier into our training and assessment software.
Through our integration with Zapier, a renowned online automation tool, you can now effortlessly connect data across your systems and favourite apps to ensure a seamless flow of accurate information. With this integration, Cloud Assess takes a significant leap forward, offering unprecedented opportunities for automation in your training processes. But what does this really mean for you, and why is automation such an essential aspect of modern training strategies? Let’s dive in.
The Need for Automation in Training
We now live in a world of connectivity, with 100,000s of apps that need to talk to each other to make our lives easier and more efficient. When it comes to managing training, both corporate entities and training organisations face unique challenges that can be effectively addressed through automated processes.
Corporations grapple with large-scale training needs that often involve diverse topics, multiple locations, and a wide array of employees. Managing these multifaceted programs can be demanding. With automation, companies can streamline their training processes, reduce human error, and ultimately improve their training outcomes.
Training Organisations like RTOs
Registered Training Organisations (RTOs), on the other hand, juggle compliance requirements, learner management, and assessment validation among other tasks. These complexities can be greatly simplified through automation, ensuring efficiency and compliance without the headache.
Benefits of Integrating Zapier with Cloud Assess
The integration of Zapier with Cloud Assess opens up a world of possibilities. By connecting with thousands of apps, Zapier allows you to create automation workflows—referred to as Zaps—that greatly increase the efficiency of your training management tasks.
This collaboration helps not only in simplifying data handling but also in fostering real-time updates across multiple platforms, thus improving the overall effectiveness of your training strategies.

Top 7 Use Cases
Here are seven standout use cases that demonstrate the transformative potential of the Cloud Assess + Zapier integration. By capitalising on these use cases, you can automate repetitive tasks, enhance data consistency, and focus more on delivering high-quality training experiences.
1. Typeform Integration for Learner Creation
Imagine having a Typeform filled out by a new student, and as soon as they hit ‘submit’, a new learner profile is automatically created in Cloud Assess. This seamless process ensures data consistency and saves valuable time.
2. Google Sheets Sync for Enrollment
With this Zap, you can maintain a Google Sheet with the details of students to be enrolled. As you update the list, new enrollments are automatically created in Cloud Assess, removing the need for manual data entry.
3. Smartsheet Connection for Intake Initiation
Similar to Google Sheets, you can manage your intake data in Smartsheet. As you add new intakes, they’re automatically created in Cloud Assess. This automation helps to keep your intake process smooth and efficient.
4. Custom Reporting via Google Sheets
Track activity results in a more personalised way. As students complete activities, their results can be sent to a Google Sheet, enabling you to create custom reports that suit your specific needs.
5. System Updates for Unit Results
With this integration, as soon as a unit result is recorded in Cloud Assess, it can be automatically updated in your people management system. This real-time updating ensures all systems stay current and aligned.
6. Celebratory Alerts on Slack or Microsoft Teams
Foster a culture of recognition and celebration. Each time a learner is marked competent for a Module/Unit, an automated celebratory message can be sent to an internal Slack or Microsoft Teams channel. This helps to boost morale and acknowledge achievement.
7. Addressing Challenges with Automated Calendar Appointments
Learning is a journey with its highs and lows. If a learner is unsuccessful after their third attempt at an activity, a calendar appointment can be automatically created in Microsoft Outlook or Google Calendar for a one-on-one discussion. This ensures learners receive the help they need, right when they need it.
