About ZapierBack to top
Zapier is a web-based service that enables Operators to integrate the web applications they use and automate the things they do over and over! Their integrated apps include Google Sheets, Gmail, Slack and MailChimp just to name a few. View their full list of integrated apps here.
Zapier has named their automated, integrated tasks - Zaps! A Zap workflow consists of a trigger and an action - when this happens (trigger), do something (action).
