Zapier is an incredibly powerful, versatile, and sometimes complicated tool. In its simplest terms, it's an app that automates repetitive tasks between two or more unrelated apps so that when one thing happens in one app, another thing can happen in another app.

We use it to make dozens of apps talk to each other, including Aisle Planner, QuickBooks, GSuite, Calendly, The Knot, and more!

Okay, so this technically isn't an app, but The Planner's Vault is a game-changer for wedding planners in year 0 - 5 of business.

With Megan Gillikin of the Weddings for Real podcast at the helm, The Planner's Vault is one part inspiring community, one part group coaching, and one part library of incredible business resources.

We cannot recommend it enough for newer planners.
