In this article, we'll give a simple walkthrough of setting up a zap between email and Device Magic.
Device Magic users on our Enterprise Plan can dispatch forms from multiple apps using Zapier. You can use any of Zapier's available triggers to dispatch forms.
Check out some popular ways Device Magic customers are utilizing Zapier currently:

Create a Zap in Zapier
First, login to your account on Zapier.com. Then, click the 'MAKE A ZAP!' link.
Next, scroll to the 'BUILT-IN APPS' section and choose 'Email' as your trigger app. (There are many triggers you can use, but again, we're going to use 'Email" for this example).
Make sure 'New Inbound Email' is selected and click 'Save + Continue'.
You will then have the option to customize the private email address associated with your email mailbox. I entered 'devicemagic' and then clicked the 'Copy to clipboard' link to the right.
This way you can paste the email address easily in the next step. Click 'Continue' and create a new email in the account which you'd like to use.
In the address bar, paste your private email address and send your test email. Don't worry, you can leave this test email blank.
After the email has been sent, navigate back to your Zapier page. You should then see confirmation from Zapier that the email has been received. When ready, click the 'Continue' button.
Next, choose 'Device Magic' as the action app.
Make sure 'Dispatch Form' is selected and click the 'Continue' link.
If you haven't connected your Device Magic account already, click the '+ Connect a New Account' link.
A new window will appear for you to authorize Zapier to use your account. Click the 'Authorize' link.
Then, this window will close and your account will appear as an option on your Zapier page. Please ensure your account is selected and click 'Continue'.
Next, customization options for your dispatched form will appear. The 'Form' and 'Device' fields are required but all other fields are optional. You can see below that I chose the "Subject" of the email will be the title of the dispatched form.
Note: When pulling data from somewhere else to Zapier,
(For example: Google Sheet > Zapier > DM Dispatch), use the device ID number (found in the device's page URL), not the usual Device Identifier.
When you're done customizing your dispatched form, click the 'Continue' button.
Zapier will then request to test your new zap, click 'Create & Continue'. A new sample dispatch will then appear on your device.
After a successful test, click 'Finish', turn your zap 'On', and your setup has been completed!
If a question identifier starts with an underscore, the value may not be included in the dispatch. To fix this, ensure your placeholders start with an alphanumeric value.
Should be changed to
Edit the identifier in your form builder, by setting a custom identifier and removing the starting underscore.
