Let's take a look at Zapier - one of the most popular automation tools on the market for building relationships between popular productivity tools you know and love.
What is Zapier?
Zapier is a cloud-based automation tool that connects different web applications and enables them to work together seamlessly. With Zapier, users can create integrations between over 3,000 different web applications, including popular tools such as Slack, Trello, Gmail, and Salesforce.
Zapier works by creating "Zaps," which are automated workflows that connect two or more apps. A Zap consists of a trigger, an action, and optionally, one or more filters. When the trigger event occurs in one app, Zapier automatically performs the action in the other app.
For example, you can create a Zap that automatically sends a Slack message to a designated channel whenever a new task is added to Trello. Or you can set up a Zap that adds new Google Calendar events to a specific Trello board. Zapier also offers a wide range of customisation options, such as the ability to add conditions or delays to your Zaps. This makes it possible to create complex automation workflows that can save time and increase productivity.
Zapier has recently introduced more products like Zapier Tables, Canvas & more.
