I am exploring the ability to create CMS items in Webflow using Zapier in order to create the following functionality:
On my photography portfolio site I want a “client area” where a client can be sent a link to a password protected collections page that would contain all the photos from our photoshoot together. The client would then be able to review the images, and ideally “like” or “comment” on them, but primarily be able to download 1 image or all the images. This would basically allow me to bake in the functionality of sites like Shootproof, Photoshelter, Cloudspot, or sharing a Dropbox/Google Drive link into my photographer portfolio sites, allowing the client to stay in the brand environment and not switch to some third party designed service.
The first barrier I am encountering while working through this in my head is, it doesn’t seem possible to generate a NEW collections page with Zapier-Webflow… only make new collection items given X Collection. Is this true?
Regarding the end-goal functionality does anyone have any resources? I have been trying to research this on-and-off for months, ultimately settling for third party solutions like sending Google Drive links, which feel unprofessional, because I can’t seem to figure out and workflow that is convenient for the client and for the photographer.
