What is Zapier?

Zapier is a tool that allows you to connect apps you use every day to automate tasks and save time. You can connect any of the 1,000+ integrated apps together to make your own automation. What's more, it's quick and easy to set up - you don't need to be a developer, anyone can make a Zap! To learn more about Zapier please follow this link.

What is a Zap?

“Zap” is a task that you want to be performed over and over again. For example, you can “add every profile visited by Dux-Soup to Hubspot CRM”. The first part of the request is the “Trigger”, and the second - the “Action”.

When you create a Zap, Zapier will automatically check the trigger for new data every few minutes and when the Zap triggers, Zapier performs an action.

What is a Trigger?

A Trigger is an event that starts a Zap. For example, if you want to add every profile visited on LinkedIn to Hubspot,  “new LinkedIn profile” will be a trigger.

What is an Action?

An Action is an event that a Zap performs. Following the example mentioned above, if you want to add every visited LinkedIn profile to Hubspot, “adding a new contact to Hubspot” will be the “Action” in this case.
