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


General knowledge

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

A Zap 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 Zapier to perform predefined tasks. 

Triggers are basically events within a software that initiates a workflow. The trigger sends a set of information to Zapier. This information can be used in zaps to perform actions in other online services that are also connected to Zapier.

The action is whatever steps the Zap takes. For example, every time a line is edited in a Google Sheet, a zap updates your users details.

A Task is how Zapier tracks your actions. This matters when choosing your plans.
Every action your Zap successfully completes is called a task. Tasks are always associated with successful actions. For example, your zap add new users in a specific group of your app GoodBarber.

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