What is Zapier?

Zapier is an online automation tool that connects your favourite apps, such as Gmail, Eagle, Office 365, and over 750 more.

Visit the Zapier website here.

You can connect two or more apps to automate repetitive tasks without coding or relying on developers to build the integration. Move info between your web apps automatically, so you can focus on your most important work. It's easy enough that anyone can build their own app workflows with just a few clicks.

For Example, you may want to use your Eagle calendar for open for inspection times and events, you could then go and save the same times in your Office 365 calendar or you could create a zap to do it for you.

Zap

A Zap is an automated workflow between your apps. For example, you may have a Zap that saves your Eagle Calendar Events and OFI times to your Office 365 calendar. Zaps consist of at least two parts: a Trigger and one or more Actions.

Trigger

A Trigger is the event in an app that starts the Zap. Once you set up a Zap, Zapier will monitor the app for that event. For the "Add event to Office365 calendar" example, you can do a lot of things in your Eagle Agent account but only adding an event to the calendar will trigger the Zap.

Action

The Action is the event that completes the Zap. For the Add event to Office365 calendar example, the action is saving the event to your Office365 calendar
