Zapier Automations (LP Classic)

This documentation is for LiquidPlanner Classic:

Zapier helps you automate repetitive tasks between two or more apps — no code necessary. When an event happens in one app, Zapier can tell another app to perform (or do) a particular action. Use Zapier to connect LiquidPlanner Classic with hundreds of applications including Salesforce, Gmail, Zendesk and Slack.

A Zap is an automated workflow that tells your apps to follow this command:
When this happens (trigger)
Then then do that (action)

A trigger is an event that starts a Zap, and an action is what your Zap does for you. Every Zap has a trigger and one or more actions. When a Zap runs, each action it completes counts as one task.

Zaps can include rules to perform actions based on if/then logic. They can also include filters to run only when specific conditions are met.
