When the no-code automation space is considered, the market players in practice focus on integrating multiple apps together to create a workflow based on triggers and actions.
⏺️A trigger is identified such as an event that would be the starting component of a workflow such as “when I receive a new e-mail in Gmail”.
▶️An action could be defined as the task to be completed once the trigger is actualized, for instance, could be set as “copy the attachment from Gmail to Dropbox”.
🔁This allows users to integrate the apps, such as Gmail and Dropbox in this example, and create an automated workflow. (Zapier | The Easiest Way to Automate Your Work, n.d.)
