Automated integrations with Employment Hero, Xero, Artisan Plus.

I would like to be able to import data from several different platforms into Smartsheet and have Smartsheet update some data in a 3rd party platform. There's not much data to shift, so I can't afford an expensive solution, but if it's possible to automate that would be great.

Specifically, I want to have our staff and their contact details imported from the HR platform, stock levels imported from a our roasting software, prices updated in Smartsheet to update prices in Xero inventory.

I'm confused about Data Shuttle, Bridge, Zapier and would like to know best practice. I'm on a business account.

    Hi @agoodkeensavage

    I hope you're well and safe!

    • Data Shuttle and Bridge are Premium Apps that must be acquired separately*.
    • Zapier is a 3rd-party integration that has a separate subscription
    • Another option could be the Smartsheet API

    I recommend starting by examining all the applications/services that you want to "sync" and then examining what the different services can do.

    There are multiple levels to this.

    • I usually develop an import solution in Smartsheet, where you can copy/paste or Export an Excel sheet and then import it.
    • Zapier or similar (depends on the data)
    • Data Shuttle or similar and manually exporting from your system, and then manually adding it to a directory that Data Shuttle automatically imports
    • Automatic export to a location and Data Shuttle automatically imports
    • Smartsheet API or Bridge

    *Feel free to reach out at, and I'd be happy to help you with the Data Shuttle license and more.

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!
