Don’t see the integration you need? We created our own Zapier app so that you can connect your other systems to PandaDoc and automate your workflows even more.
Zapier helps you automate your business by connecting your web applications with triggers and actions. This way, you can set up a Zap that says “If PandaDoc does this, make X do that.” Or, “If X does this, make PandaDoc do that.”
You can also refer to the Zapier guide on using PandaDoc here, or learn foundations with our Zapier course.
Note:At this time, PandaDoc Support Team is unable to provide assistance with all apps that integrate with Zapier. However, we provide support with the Featured Zaps listed below. Our friends at Zapier will be the best to help and advise on other workflows.
Connect PandaDoc with Zapier
Go to PandaDoc Settings > Integrations. Find Zapier and click on it.
Then click “Enable” and choose one of the zap templates you want to use. Click “Use this zap”, and then you’ll be redirected to Zapier to connect your account and create a test zap.
If you can't find a zap template that fits your needs, click here, find and add PandaDoc, authorize the connection and create your own zap.
Note, in case you have access to our previous versions of the app, make sure you choose “PandaDoc” as your app, not “PandaDoc (legacy)”. This is our old deprecated integration.

How to Use a Zapier Template
- Choose your Zap (either in Zapier or in PandaDoc);
- Click “Try it”.
Zapier will guide you through each step in the setup. Just click the blue buttons to verify your triggers and actions, and connect your accounts.
Zapier can't find my sample doc. Why?
Make sure your sample doc has recently gone through the trigger events you selected. If Zapier can’t find one, try making a new one. For a completed document, make sure it was generated from the template selected in your trigger.
Connecting multiple workspaces to Zapier
I connected Zapier to one of my workspaces, but I can’t find the template I need. Why?
Reason: If you have several workspaces, your template/document might exist in a workspace that you did not connect to Zapier.
Solution: On the 3rd step “Connect PandaDoc + Zapier”, connect your correct workspace to Zapier. Here’s how: Log in to PandaDoc, and switch workspaces to the one you’d like to connect. Then, go to Zapier and connect the account to create a new user.
Why can’t I see my token/field/pricing tables in my trigger?
It’s possible you did not select a template for your trigger. Please select a template to get your template specific data.
Why can't I find all of my fields in my data?
Fields get created in PandaDoc with generic names like “textfield” or “date”. So all text fields or date fields will have the same name unless they are changed. After Zapier is enabled, go to PandaDoc and rename the fields on your template so you can recognize and map them correctly.
I don’t see the same triggers available for my zap. What’s wrong?
You may be using an outdated version of our Zap. Look for the app simply called “PandaDoc”, and don’t use any that have a version number behind it.
Signatures in a completed PDF are missing
My Zap didn't fire when I duplicate the document
The trigger is set up on the specific template or form. In case the document is created from them, it will trigger the action.
