Zapier Triggers: Understanding and Utilizing Them in Zaps

If you’re looking to streamline and automate your workflows across apps, then Zapier triggers are a great tool for you. In this article, we’ll provide an overview of what Zapier triggers are and how you can use them in the context of Zaps. We’ll also discuss Cardtapp triggers in the Zapier integration and provide a few examples of how you can use them.

What are Zapier Triggers?

Zapier Triggers are events that initiate a Zap. A Zap is an automated workflow that connects apps and services together. When a specific event (the trigger) occurs in one app, it sets off a series of predefined actions in another app. In simple terms, a trigger is the "when this happens" part of a Zap.

For example, if you have a Zap that connects your email app to your task management app, a possible trigger could be "When I receive a new email in my inbox." Once this trigger is activated, it can initiate actions like "Create a new task in my task management app."

In the context of Zaps:

  • Triggers are the starting point of any Zap. They watch for specific events in your chosen app.

  • Once a trigger is activated, it sets off one or more actions in another app.

  • This allows for seamless automation between different apps and services, saving time and reducing manual tasks.

Cardtapp Triggers in the Zapier Integration

Cardtapp is integrated with Zapier, allowing users to automate workflows between Cardtapp and other apps. Here are the available triggers for Cardtapp in the Zapier integration:
