Triggers, Events, and Functions

Triggers are used to respond to an event. Create triggers to associate Functions with Events. Let's say you want to trigger an email when a task is created. You can create a send mail function. Next, create a trigger and associate the send mail function with the create a task event. An email will be sent when a task is created. Zoho Projects supports the following events:
  • Run an extension
  • Stop and extension
  • Install an extension
  • Uninstall an extension
  • Disable an extension
  • Enable an extension
  • Update an extension
  • Upgrade an extension
  • Delete a task
  • Create a task
  • Add comment to a task
  • Update a task field

Create a function

Functions let you customize your extensions by connecting other cloud services. Functions can be associated with events in Zoho Projects such that they are triggered when a particular event takes place. Let's create a sample function to send an email.
  1. Navigate to Functions module and click Add Function in the top right corner.
  2. Enter a function name and give a description.
  3. Click Create.
  4. Open the newly created function.
  5. Drag and drop the send mail function under the Notifications section.
  6. Specify the sender and recipient email address, the email subject, and the main text.
  7. Click Edit to add place holders to your email.
  8. Click Update.

Create a trigger

  1. Navigate to Extension module and hover over your extension and then click <icon>.
  2. Navigate to Triggers and then click Add Trigger.
  3. Enter a name for your trigger.
  4. Select the event for which you want the trigger to be fired.
  5. Select a function to associate with your trigger.
  6. Choose the function version.
  7. Click Create
