Zapier provides an integration platform that allows you to automate daily tasks that involve using two or more applications. By creating a “Zap”, you can define an action and set it up to be repeated when certain triggers happen.
An example of a “trigger” that you could set up in Zapier might be receiving an email in Gmail from a certain address, an “action” might include receiving an SMS notification. The Zap is therefore to receive an SMS notification every time you receive an email from a certain client in your Gmail account.
