What are Zaps?
Zap is what creates all the magic of 3rd party app connections on Zapier. They are automated connections, set up in minutes with no coding. They work wonders at automating your day-to-day tasks and building workflows between apps that otherwise would require time, efforts and a whole lot of coding.
Each Zap thrives on "Trigger" and "Actions." So a given Zap has one app as the "Trigger". This app will be where your information comes from and is responsible for the "Action" in other apps, where your data gets sent automatically. Trigger and Action apps will always be different.
It is the next step after "making a Zap." A trigger is the starting point and keeps a lookout for updates. When you want to carry data from Stackby to a different tool via Zapier integration, you use "New row" and "New row in a view" as triggers. Similarly, if you want to bring data from other tools to Stackby, you need to choose from the available triggers of those tools.
Now that you have set the trigger, it will keep a lookout for new or updated data. that is what Actions is all about. It is an event a Zap performs after it is triggered. As soon as the new data appears or whenever data is updated, it will trigger the action like "Create a new row" or "Update row".
