What is Zapier Integration?

Zapier is a web automation app allowing you to connect apps, to assign those apps some tasks, and to automate the necessary actions. The main aim of Zapier is to enable its customers to save time in their digital endeavors.

Zapier has more than 1500 integrated apps and can connect with any of those. You can mix and match triggers and actions to ease your job in the digital world. Furthermore, because zaps are simple-to-make, you don’t have to be educated or experienced to create a zap.

Zap is a guide for an Action to complete a task in one app when a Trigger occurs in another. More basically, a zap thinks in the following way;

“When I get a new thing in-app A (Trigger), I will apply another thing to app B (Action).”

Moreover, a multi-step zap is a zap created with one trigger and multiple actions. Automating the entire process of your digital jobs with multi-step zaps enables you to apply an advanced strategy.
