What is a Bot?

Bots are the automatons you create in Automate.io. A Bot typically spans across multiple applications you use and performs automated actions when something happens in one of the apps.

A Bot consists of a Trigger and one or more Actions.

What are Triggers & Actions?

A Trigger is what sets the Bot into execution. It’s the start condition/event for a Bot. This is typically some event happening in one of your apps. For example, a new email in your Gmail or someone filling a form on your website.

An Action is something you want to perform in one of your apps. For example, creating a new contact in your CRM or sending an email.

A Bot consists of one or more actions. The actions are performed one by one immediately after the trigger event happens.

What are Apps?

Apps are the third-party applications you use that you have linked to Automate.io. For example, Gmail, MailChimp etc.
