What is Zapier?



Zapier is an online automation tool that allows you to connect two or more apps to automate repetitive tasks, and anyone can do this.

On Zapier, you can create Zaps that begin with a trigger and will complete an action based on this trigger.

What is a Zap?

A Zap is an automated workflow between your apps, made up of a trigger - an event that begins the Zap, Zapier will monitor the app for that event; and an action - the event that completes the Zap, what you want to happen once Zapier comes across this trigger.

For example, Zap that adds new users that have filled out a form on your site to be added to your Mailchimp list. The trigger is a new user has just filled out a form, and the action is adding this user to your Mailchimp list.

For more information on how to use Zapier, check out their getting started doc, here.
