How Does Zapier Work?
An automated workflow created on Zapier is called Zap. Zap is made up of 2 elements essentially:
Trigger | an event that initiates the Zap
Actions | an event that is triggered
The activation of the Trigger would cause the Actions to be performed in a precise sequential manner.
You can design the activation of your Trigger to respond to certain conditions only. This is done through the insertion of Filters.
You can also set Paths to help you trigger varieties of events based on different conditions.
Mono–Step Zap consists of 1 Trigger and 1 Action (single filter and path) and is available on the free subscription package, while Multi-Step Zap consists of more Triggers and Action, which is only available on the paid subscription package.
Task is when a Zap has completed all the actions.
With Zapier, you can:
- Build your integration using the tools of your choice
- Give users early access to your integration
- Work with them on an official launch campaign to spread the word further.
- Surface your integration in your app.
- Earn benefits as you grow with the Integration Partner Program
- Get additional resources like a Partner Marketing Kit.
You can customize Zaps to perform any task. All you need to do is tweak an existing template or develop your template from scratch.
Design or tailor solutions to your team’s perticular needs by adding or creating multiple steps and workflow filters and paths.
How much does Zapier cost?
Like most SaaS services, using the free package has its limitations.
FREE version gives you the opportunity to:
- create only 1 Mono-Step Zap
- create 50 Tasks per month
- Update data every 15 minutes
You would need to move to a paid subscription the moment you start creating and automating complex workflows.
