What is Zapier?
Zapier is an online platform that helps you automate workflows by connecting the apps and services you use. This allows you to automate tasks without having to build this integration yourself. Or hiring someone to build this integration for you. To give an example, Zapier can automatically send out a custom tweet right after you’ve published a post. The custom part means that you set up once what these automatic tweets will look like and what they will contain. But with over 2000+ destinations other than Twitter, Zapier can handle lots of automatic tasks for different platforms or destinations. It does so by letting you create “Zaps”, automated workflows that consist of a trigger and one or more actions. When you set up and activate a new Zap, it will run its action(s) every time the trigger event occurs. To get back to that example: let’s say you set a Zap for a custom tweet that goes out for every published post. In this case, publishing a post is the trigger event and the custom tweet is the automated action that follows. Sending out a custom tweet for every post you publish is cool, but it’s just one of the many possible automated workflows that you can create with Zapier. So let’s take a look at what else you can let Zapier automate for you. The idea behind this automation tool is to help you create a smarter and customized workflow. To save you time and make it possible to focus on the important parts of your work. And because everyone has different apps or services that they use throughout their workday, Zapier offers integration with so many different destinations.
