Webflow is a powerful tool I love that allows users to create stunning websites without needing to know how to code. However, there are times when you need to integrate Webflow with other applications to optimize your workflow. This is where Make (formerly Integromat) comes in.
Make is one of my favorite tools of all time. It allows me to create custom web-automations for every possible industry. It’s easy to set up, and you can get real nerdy here too 😀
Make is a powerful automation tool that allows you to connect different apps and services to create workflows that can save you time and effort. In this article, I will provide a brief introduction to Make and show you how to use it to optimize some common use cases with Webflow.
What is Make?
Make is a web-based automation tool that allows you to connect different apps and services to create workflows that automate repetitive tasks. With Make, you can automate tasks such as sending emails, creating documents, adding data to spreadsheets, and much more. Make makes it easy to connect different services together using pre-built integrations, so you don't need to know how to code to use it.
How to get started with Make
To get started with Make, you will need to create an account on the Make website. Once you have created an account, you can start building workflows by connecting different services together. Make offers a wide range of pre-built integrations that you can use to connect different services, including Webflow.
How to connect Webflow with Make
To connect Webflow with Make, you will need to create an API key in your Webflow account. You can do this by going to your Webflow account settings and clicking on the API keys tab. From there, you can generate a new API key, which you will need to copy and paste into Make.
Once you have your API key, you can start building workflows that involve Webflow. To do this, you will need to add the Webflow integration to your Make account. You can do this by clicking on the "Integrations" tab in Make and then selecting Webflow from the list of available integrations. From there, you will need to enter your Webflow API key and authorize Make to access your Webflow account.
How to optimize Webflow with Make
Here are five common use cases where you can use Make to optimize your Webflow workflow:
1. Automatically add new form submissions to Google Sheets or Airtable
Want to save time and streamline your workflow by automatically adding new form submissions from your Webflow website to your Google Sheets or Airtable?
With Make (formerly Integromat), you can do just that! All you need to do is create a new workflow in Make that starts with the Webflow "New form submission" trigger and add a Google Sheets or Airtable action to create a new row with the form submission data.Keep track of all your form submissions in one place and focus on more important tasks with Make. It's that simple!
Picture this scenario: you operate an e-commerce website using Webflow, and you have a contact form in place for customers to reach out to you. After every customer fills out the form, you manually copy the information from the form and paste it into a Google Sheets or Airtable spreadsheet to keep track of the submissions.
This can be a tedious and error-prone task, which can consume a significant amount of your time. However, with Make (formerly Integromat), you can automate this process and have all form submissions added to your Google Sheets or Airtable automatically. This will save you time, reduce the chances of errors, and ensure that all submissions are organized in one place.
2. Automatically send form submissions to Slack
If you use Slack for communication with your team, you can use Make to automatically send new form submissions to a Slack channel. This can be useful if you want to keep everyone on your team informed about new form submissions.

Make that starts with the Webflow "New form submission" trigger. From there, you can add a Slack action to send a message to a Slack channel with the form submission data.
3. Automatically create new CMS items from Notion

Then, you'll use Make to automate the process of publishing your content to your Webflow CMS. Finally, you'll trigger the scenario manually or set it to run automatically on a schedule.
By using Make and Notion together, you'll save time and streamline your content creation process. And with my video as your guide, you'll be up and running in no time. So don't wait - watch the video now and start taking your Webflow CMS to the next level!
