You can use Streak's native integration tool to automate repetitive tasks and load data into Streak custom columns automatically.
For example, when a box moves into your "Closed - Won" stage, you could automatically create a task for "Send welcome packet".
What triggers and actions are available?
The triggers available are (this is the behavior that would start the automation):
New box created
Box change stage
Box hasn't moved
Mail merge recipient viewed
Mail merge recipient clicked
Mail merge recipient replied
The following actions can run automatically once a trigger occurs:
Create a box: Create or update a box within a specific Streak pipeline
Add contact to a box: Add a contact to a box or create a new one
Add comment to box: Create a comment in the box every time the trigger occurs
Add task to box: Create a task in the box
Add recipient to mail merge: Add the contact to a mail merge
Add box contacts to mail merge: Add the contacts in a box to a mail merge
Pause recipient in mail merge: Pause the mail merge for an individual recipient
Change box stage: Update the stage of an existing box
Update box: Update fields of an existing box
Add Gmail thread to box: Add a Gmail thread to a box
Send snippet: Send a snippet to a set of recipients
Send message to Slack: Posts a message to any public channel
Open link: Opens any URL in a new tab
Outbound webhook: Request a webhook
How to create tasks automatically when a box changes stage in Streak:
1. Access “Integrations & Automation”:
Open the pipeline where you wish to set up the integration.
Click the three dots in the top right hand corner.
Click “Integrations & Automation”.
Click the option “Automate repetitive tasks”.
Click on the template “Create tasks when a box changes stage”.
2. Set up your trigger ‘Box stage changed’ step:
Decide if you want to trigger the task automation based on the “Leaving Stage” or “Entering Stage”, or both.
Once decided, double click into either field to make your stage selection.
3. Set up your “Add task to box” step:
Double click into the required “Task name” field to complete. This tells the integration what the name of your tasks will be. For example, “review candidate box”.
Double click into the “Due date” field to choose when these tasks will be due once created. You can select any of the “suggestions” that populate or you can add a formula that will create a due date based on another date column in your pipeline.
Optional: Double click into the “Assigned To” field to choose your Streak teammate(s) that should be assigned to the tasks. If you leave “Assigned To” blank, these boxes will be assigned to the user that actually moves the box.
