With Make extension, you have the ability to connect your app to thousands of other online services. It's the perfect extension for setting up automations without the need to code.

Make is a no-code tool that you can use to connect apps and automate different tasks.
It allows you to integrate your app and then tell Make what you want to accomplish. All this without having to write a single line of code.


General information

Before getting started, here are a few terms you need to know: 

Make works by linking together your favorite apps/services by their corresponding modules to create a scenario that will transfer and transform your data automatically for you.
A scenario comprises of a series of modules that indicate how data should be transferred and transformed between apps/services.
It is an automated workflow that tells your apps to follow this simple command: "When this happens, do that."
It's a series of instructions that you define in Make to perform predefined tasks. 

Make distinguishes different types of modules:
Actions are the most common module type. The action can be at any stage of the scenario.
For example, every time a row is changed in a Google sheet, a module updates your users' details.

Triggers are essentially events within software that initiate a workflow. The trigger sends a set of information to Make. This information can be used in modules to perform actions in other online services also connected to Make.

Make has its own online helps . If you can't find what you're looking for, you can also get help here .
