2. Create your trigger

From your Zapier dashboard, click Create Zap in the top left. Search for LinkedIn Lead Gen Ads from the App Event window, and from the Trigger Event dropdown pick New Lead Gen Form Response. Choose your LinkedIn account when prompted, followed by the Lead Form you’d like to use for this Zap. Continue to test your trigger.

3. Add an action

Next, we’ll tell Zapier to send new form submissions to your Attio workspace. Add a new action step with the + icon and pick Attio from the App Event dropdown. For Action Event, choose Find or Create a Person. Select your Attio account. Mapping the fields using the data from step 1, set your action up like this:

An action step in Zapier is configured to pull name and email address data from a specific LinkedIn Lead Gen Form
Map fields using data pulled from prior steps in the Zap

4. Add your entry to a collection

Finally, add another action step to your Zap and pick Attio from the dropdown. Choose Find or Create Entry from the Action Event dropdown, selecting your Attio account when prompted.

For the Record ID field, you’ll need to map data from the Find or Create a Person step in your Zap. Choose Find or Create Person from the Record ID dropdown, followed by Show all options. Scroll down to find ID. Your action should look something like this:

A final action step is configured to create a new entry in an Attio collection called Sales
Create a new entry in your Attio collection using values from previous steps

And that’s it! With your Zap turned on, all new leads from your LinkedIn Lead Gen Forms will be automatically added to your Attio collection.
