What are the different elements in creating a Zap?
Triggers are something that happens in an app that you want to be the start of a Zap's workflow. For example, receiving a visit on a document in DocSend is the trigger.
Actions happen after a trigger occurs within your Zap. To continue the above example, if you use a Zap to take DocSend visits and add them to a Google sheet, Google Sheet 'Add Row' would be the action for that Zap. A Zap can only have one trigger, but it can have many actions. There are two types of actions:
- App Actions - An action of creating something in an app. For example, creating or updating a specific worksheet row within a specific Google Sheet > Worksheet.
- App searches - App searches can be used to look up info to be used by a later action. For example, a Zap could look up the details of a Google sheet that has a certain worksheet, so that the description or due date from that card could be used by a later action.
