What is a Zap?

Simply speaking, a “Zap” is a task that you want to be performed over and over again. For example, you can “add every prospect added by Lead Connect to Sales Force CRM”. The first part of the request is the “Trigger”, and the second - the “Action”.

A Trigger is the event that starts a Zap. For example, if you want to add event "Invitation Accepted" from Lead Connect to Sales Force CRM, lead connect will be call your Zapier URL with the relevant data which will be the trigger.

What is an Action?

An Action is the event that a Zap performs. Following the example mentioned above, if you want to add every Accepted LinkedIn profile to Sales Force , “adding new contact to Sales Force” will be the “Action” in this case.
