Triggers and Actions
Zapier integration works by creating Triggers and Actions. A Trigger might be a new Contact being created in your CRM, or a new email arriving in Gmail. An Action could be the creation of a Task in your CRM, adding data to a spreadsheet or sending an SMS message. By putting together a Trigger with one or more Actions, you have what’s known as a “Zap”.
For example, you might pass new Contacts to a MailChimp list from your CRM using the Really Simple Systems “New Contact” trigger. Each time a new contact is added to you CRM it will also be automatically added to MailChimp.
Another, more sophisticated example, would be a “Zap” that adds a Task in your CRM when a new email arrives. This could be achieved by using the Gmail “New Email” trigger, which would drive an Action to find the relevant Contact in your CRM. It would then drive another action to find the Account and, finally, Create a Task for that Account.

There’s over 5,000 cloud applications on the Zapier platform, each with multiple Triggers and Actions available. There are almost unlimited ways to combine these into “Zaps”, saving you time by automating your data flow.
