How to: Send your lead a custom proposal using a manual trigger

Has your lead entered the proposal stage? Do you need to send a customizable proposal template? Stop jumping back and forth from one app to another and create a manual trigger to send a template proposal for you. By automating part of the process, you can enhance your sales team efficiency.

What is a manual trigger?

A manual trigger allows you to manually trigger the workflow/task you want Zapier to execute in the same or another app directly from your lead’s Actions menu.

With our Zapier connection to PandaDoc, you can:

  • Manually select which lead you want to send a proposal to and hit the send button from noCRM;
  • Ensure your proposal includes all the custom variables of your lead including their full name, company name, amount proposed, and any other information you need to plug in;
  • Automatically attach your sent proposal to the lead;
  • Log the activity automatically on the lead.

  • Find out more about what you can do with the lead Actions menu here.


    All you need to set it up are PandaDoc, noCRM.io, and Zapier accounts.
