What is Zapier?

Zapier is an online automation tool that allows you to connect different web applications and automate tasks between them. It enables you to create automated workflows, called “zaps,” without the need for coding or technical expertise.

Common Terms in Zapier:

Zap: A zap is a predefined workflow that connects two or more apps and automates a specific task or action. It consists of a trigger and one or more actions.

Example: Let’s say you want to automate the process of creating an event in Event Prime and sharing the event details in Google Sheets. In Zapier, you would create a zap that triggers when a new event is created in Event Prime and performs the action of adding the event details to a specific sheet in Google Sheets.

Trigger: A trigger is the event or condition that initiates the automation workflow. It is the starting point of a zap and defines when the automation should be triggered.

Example: In our scenario, the trigger would be a new event creation in Event Prime. Whenever a new event is created, it will trigger the automation process.

Action: An action is a task or operation that occurs after the trigger event. It is the step that Zapier performs in response to the trigger.

Example: For our example, the action would be sharing the event details in Google Sheets. Once a new event is created, Zapier will add the event details to the designated sheet in Google Sheets.

So, whenever a new event is created in Event Prime (Trigger), Zapier will automatically add the event details to a specific sheet in Google Sheets (Action). This automation saves you time and effort by eliminating the need to manually enter event details into the spreadsheet.
