Zapier is an online automation tool that connects your apps, such as Gmail, Slack, Mailchimp, etc. You can connect two or more apps to automate repetitive tasks. You do not need coding or rely on developers to build the integration. It's easy enough that anyone can develop their own app workflows with just a few clicks.
Before you start
Before starting with Zapier, you need to understand the below terms:
Zap: A Zap is an automated workflow between your apps. For example, you may have a Zap that saves your Gmail attachments to dropbox. Another Zap that saves google form response to create consignment. Zaps consist of at least two parts: a trigger and actions.
Trigger: A trigger is an event in an app that starts the Zap. Once you set up a Zap, Zapier will monitor the app for that event. For example, you can receive a lot of emails through your Gmail account, but the Zap isn't triggered until an email contains an attachment.
Action: An action is an event that completes the Zap. For example, the action is uploading the attachment from your email to dropbox.
