Click Save + Continue
Setting Up Drop Cowboy
Click the + Sign on the right hand side and Choose “Phone Number” this will be the field that phone numbers are placed into the software you are connecting with Drop Cowboy.
Note: If phone number doesn’t exist for software you set up please map the section you chose to have your leads phone numbers loaded into, this will let Drop Cowboy know to read this section and send ringless voicemail to this number.
Type what ever caller ID you would like displayed on missed call and voicemail.
Note: This is the number recipients will be calling you back on.
Select recording you would like to send for this particular Zap, remember you are able to create and send different Ringless Voicemail for multiple stages and processes for your business by following these same instructions for another process.
Note: Recordings need to be recorded in your Drop Cowboy account first, make sure you label them properly, so you are able to choose the correct recording within Zapier.
Test your Zap
Once everything is good turn your zap on, you can double check that your zap is on my heading to your main dashboard and clicking My Zaps. Locate your Zap and make sure you toggled the button on the right to the on position which will highlight in green.
