With Walls.io, you can automatically import activities from Strava onto your Wall. It's easy to achieve this with our Zapier integration. This step-by-step guide explains how it's done.

🚨 Important: This requires access to the Walls.io API, which is only included in our Premium subscription & Large event pass.

1. Sign-up to Zapier

To get started, sign up with Zapier (https://zapier.com/) if you haven't already. Zapier is a marketing tool that allows you to connect hundreds of apps without coding skills. Zapier is offering free plans, so you can get started right away!

2. Enable API access for your wall

In Walls.io, go to "Settings" -> "API Access" and activate the access token:

3. Create & name your Zap

In Zapier, start to create your "Zap" by clicking "Make a Zap" (a Zap is kind of a "recipe" that will connect two apps, in our case Strava + Walls.io). Enter a name for your Zap, f.e. "Strava to Walls.io".

4. Choose "Strava" for the Trigger App

5. Choose "New Activity" as trigger event:

This trigger will be fired every time a new activity is added to your Strava account.

6. Sign in to Strava

If this is your first Zap using Strava, you'll have to "Sign in to Strava" to give Zapier permission to access your Strava account:

Clicking "Test Trigger" will bring in the most recent activity:

8. Choose "Walls.io" for the Action

9. Choose "Create Post" for the action event:

10. Sign in to Walls.io

If this is your first Zap using Walls.io, you'll have to "Sign in to Walls.io" and copy/paste the API token obtained in step 2:

11. Customize Post

Finally, you need to map the Strava fields to Walls.io. We recommend to get started with these fields:

  • Name (of Activity)

  • Distance in K

  • Pace in K

  • Elevation

  • Start Latitude

  • Start Longitude

Select True for Moderation Status if you want to set your wall to Automatic Moderation. If you prefer to have Manual Moderation (=approve each post manually before it gets displayed on your social Wall), select "False".

11. Test your Zap and turn it on!

After turning on your Zap, all activities on your Strava account will be automatically sent to your Wall! 🚀
