Zapier is an automation software that allows you to connect different web applications with each other, and move information between them automatically. You can now use Zapier to connect Zoho TeamInbox with other applications around the web. Connect your Zoho TeamInbox account with Zapier, set up your own Zap to build a new workflow, and automate the connection between two apps.
For example, you can set up a Zap such that whenever there is a new incoming email that contains the words "demo request", the sender's email address gets automatically added to your Zoho CRM.
A Zap is an automated workflow that you set up between tasks. A Zap is a combination of a trigger from one web app and an action in another web app.
A trigger is the event that starts the Zap. An action is the event that a Zap performs after it is triggered. You can perform lots of actions with just one trigger.
