At the very beginning, it's good to introduce the idea behind triggers and actions in Zapier.


Trigger

In the real world trigger is a part of a gun that once pulled causes the gun to shoot. Every time you pull a trigger you can fire one shot.


Now, going back to the cyber world, we can think about triggers in a really similar way. You can set some triggers that once fulfilled in Woodpecker, Zapier will "pull" to release a reaction.

For example, if a prospect who receives an email message sent from Woodpecker will open the email, the trigger will release a Zapier reaction.


Action

Action stands for an action that Zapier will take after a certain trigger is pulled. For example, after an email message is opened, Zapier will create new Google Contact.


Summary

So the Trigger-Action mechanism is the main mechanism that runs Zapier's Zaps. To simplify the whole idea we can picture it as: IF something happens in one system, something else happens in the other.

Keeping this and the fact that currently there are 2000+ applications integrated with Zapier in mind, you can do really great things within this automation.
