Take Zapier webpage screenshots from many locations

You can now integrate Geo with your tools directly using Zapier. In this tutorial, we’ll create a Zap that captures Bing News daily from Japan and sends an email with a screenshot.

1. Grab an API Key

You can find the API keys in the My Account section
  1. Sign up for the advanced plan, and go to the API section of My Account: https://www.geoscreenshot.com/userarea/account/api
  2. Create a new API key for Zapier. The API key will be shown in the list titled “Existing Keys”. You can hover over the blurred box to reveal the content.
  3. Save the API key in a safe location. You will use this key to authenticate with Zapier.

2. Connect with Zapier

Use the invitation link to sign up for the Zap.

This invite link will take you to the GeoScreenshot integration

Sign up for Zapier or sign in with your existing account. You will see a screen to accept an invitation:

Accept the invitation by clicking “Accept invite and build a zap”

3. Create a new Zap – Authenticate

You can use any app that generates events as a trigger for screenshots. For this example, we will use Zapier’s built-in Schedule app.

Configure the triggering event by modifying the settings of the zap

Search for GeoScreenshot and select the app

You should see GeoScreenshot in the search results

Click on Sign in with GeoScreenshot

It will open a modal that will ask you for the API Key from Step 1

Fill your API key and click Continue

You should see your email and plan under account

You have now linked Zapier with your Geo account!

4. Create a new Zap – Screenshot

Once you click Continue, it will take you to the capture setting screen.

The options shown here mirror what is available in the Capture user interface at geoscreenshot.com

Run a test capture once you’ve configured your capture

You will get a JSON response with all of the output. https://api.geoscreenshot.com/

Send an email with the capture results

The Email app by Zapier provides an easy way to send email reports

Enrich the body of the email with capture data

You can refer to any field in the JSON response in the body and/or subject of the email
Send a test email and turn on Zap

3. Get a daily email with the screenshot
