What is Zapier?
Zapier is an online automation tool that connects your apps and services. You can connect two or more apps to automate repetitive tasks without coding or relying on developers to build the integration. You can use Zapier to connect Hyperline to heaps of other tools your team is using such as your CRM, your accounting software, your product, and more.
What is a Zap?
A Zap is an automated workflow that connects your apps and services together. Each Zap consists of a trigger and one or more actions. When you turn your Zap on, it will run the action steps every time the trigger event occurs.
Trigger and action
A trigger is an event that starts a Zap, an action is an event a Zap performs after it is triggered. For example, if you want to create an account in your CRM each time a customer is created into Hyperline, the trigger is “Customer Created” which will trigger the action “Create an account in CRM”.
You can use the Hyperline app in Zapier to automate things like creating new customer from CRM, sending invoices to your accounting software, or pushing using data into Hyperline.
