Uncanny Automator – Automate everything with the #1 no-code automation and integration plugin

Description

Uncanny Automator is the easiest and most powerful way to automate your WordPress site with no code. Build automations in minutes that connect your WordPress plugins, sites and apps together using billions of recipe combinations.

Here’s how Uncanny Automator works:

When something happens, Automator can make other things happen.

When a user buys a product, add them to a membership level, enroll them in a course and pass their information to Google Sheets.

It’s that simple! Here’s a video outlining how it all works.

If you’ve used Zapier, setting things up will be intuitive. And if not, that’s okay too!

E-commerce Automation

Improve customer engagement by having your purchases trigger marketing automation campaigns, award store credit, promote 5-star reviews, schedule time-limited bonus offers and offer profile-driven discounts. Or for advanced reporting and customer service, create WooCommerce automations that send purchase details to Google Sheets, Slack and ActiveCampaign. It all happens automatically!

Google Sheets Automation

Build powerful reports and dashboards based on almost any WordPress activity or data with 1-click Google Sheets integration. Track purchases, course completions, blog post updates, forum posts and more. Not only can you create new rows for reports with Uncanny Automator, but you can update existing records, making it perfect for dashboard reporting.

Webhook Automation

Looking for the most powerful and comprehensive webhook support to connect your WordPress site to other apps? Uncanny Automator has support for security headers, any request method and any data format (including nesting support, JSON, XML, arrays and more). Use our 1-click sample generation and debug records to simplify connecting to other sites and systems, and send unlimited outgoing webhooks with the free version.

LearnDash and E-Learning Automation

Personalize student experiences and deliver better learning outcomes with no-code automations. Notify an instructor when users fail a quiz and enroll them in a remedial course–automatically. Add users to groups based on performance to allow easy collaboration. Automate student outreach when users fall behind in their coursework and offer easy learning interventions.

Social Media Automation

Spend less time sharing your posts and announcements on social media with automatic posting. Automatically post anything you want to Facebook Pages, Facebook Groups, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram, including with images and links. Sign up for a free account to get 250 credits for social posting; Pro plugin users get unlimited posting.

OpenAI Automation

Connect your new posts and site activity to OpenAI, with full support for ChatGPT and Dall-E models. Use Automator and the OpenAI to generate article summaries, social media posts, SEO descriptions, translations, email campaigns, featured images and more.

Marketing Automation

Integrate your favourite CRM with your WordPress plugins for full marketing automation. Add or remove tags based on course activity, purchases and more, and keep your email lists updated automatically. Or, with Automator Pro and Loops, send emails out in bulk and use Automator as your own CRM.

Free doesn’t mean limited

The free version of Automator is incredibly powerful and comes with built-in automation support for all of these popular apps and WordPress plugins:

Supported apps

WordPress Plugins Integrations

Over 350 automation triggers and actions are available for the plugins and apps listed above in the free version. There’s straightforward documentation in our Knowledge Base, including some quick and straightforward instructional videos. Developers, there’s robust documentation and code samples for you too!

Beyond the plugin and app integrations, this free version of Uncanny Automator also supports common WP triggers and actions in automations:

  • A user views a page
  • A user submits a comment
  • A user logs in
  • A user publishes a post
  • Send an email
  • Create a post
  • Add a WP role

All WP plugin triggers and actions included in Uncanny Automator come with a forever free license, which allows unlimited usage on your WordPress site. By creating a free, optional Automator account, you can unlock 250 credits to try out app integrations. You can use credits on your site to:

  • Post new content to Facebook Groups, Facebook Pages, Twitter and Instagram
  • Pass records to Google Sheets (to generate charts or reports or manipulate data outside of WordPress)
  • Notify staff of key events in Slack
  • Register customers in Zoom events on product purchase
  • Send Mailchimp campaigns when new blog posts are published
  • Generate, proofread or translate text with OpenAI and GPT
  • and more

Take automation to the next level

Uncanny Automator Pro, our premium plugin, adds even more features and integrations, including the ability to create users and posts, delay and schedule actions, connect multiple sites together, add conditions to actions, and unlock unlimited use of app integrations integrations like Google Sheets and Twitter. It also triples the number of available triggers and actions.

Pro also adds features like Run Now and Loops, which allow you to do things like send emails to all users matching certain criteria, tagging users based on site activity, or even generating instant reports in Google Sheets of all users that completed a specific course, purchased a certain product, or anything else you can imagine.

Here are some of the other really cool automations you can create with Automator Pro:

  • When a user makes a purchase using WooCommerce on one site, create a user on another WP site, send the user a link to set a new password, enroll the user in a course and add a membership level.
  • When a user submits a form, add the user to a mailing list if their email address matches a certain domain, add them to a social group and schedule their trial access to expire in 7 days if they don’t make a purchase.
  • When a new course is published, send an email campaign, post to X/Twitter and Facebook with GPT-generated content, post to the BuddyBoss sitewide activity stream and notify instructors in a Slack channel.
  • Whenever you want, generate a list all users in a group that haven’t yet completed a course.

And here are some of the key features in the Pro version that allow incredibly flexible and powerful automations for WP:

Business licenses and higher get access to our Custom User Fields Addon addon, which makes it really easy to create and manage user profile fields in WordPress. Automatically add new fields to user edit pages and connect fields to your recipes and plugins like Advanced Custom Fields.

An Automator Pro license also includes access to our world-class premium support.

I am blown away by the capabilities of this plugin. I have been able to achieve things across multiple sites that I didn't think possible. It was simple to use and when I did hit a snag, the support was incredible. They did everything they could to drill down on the isssue. Spoiler alert, the issue was me. I will be using this a lot in the future.
