Tips to Get Started

Common Terms: Learn to Speak Zapier

  • Zap: A Zap is an automated workflow between your apps. For example, you may have a Zap that saves your GoogleSheets row details to GetSwift and another Zap that saves emails that you star in Gmail to you GetSwift Account. Zaps consist of at least two parts: a Trigger and one or more Actions
  • Trigger: A Trigger is the event in an app that starts the Zap. This will always be the app that you are looking to integrate with GetSwift.  Once you set up a Zap, Zapier will monitor the app for that event. For the "Save Gmail order details to GetSwift" example, you can receive a lot of emails through your Gmail account, but the Zap is not triggered until an email contains applicable order details.
  • Action: The Action is the event that completes the Zap. This will always be GetSwift.  For the Gmail to GetSwift Zap example, the action is saving the Gmail order details to GetSwift.
  • Task: Each piece of data you run through your Zap counts as a task. That means if your Zap adds 100 emails to GetSwift automatically, your Zap just performed 100 tasks. Every task your Zap performs is another task that you don't have to do manually. It's important to keep in mind the number of tasks your Zaps run, because it helps determine what Zapier plan is best for you.
