Zapier is a third party service that helps to automate flow of information between different applications. You can link your account with the pre-built zaps, or setup your own zap to create a new workflow and automate the link between two apps.
A basic zap in Zapier will have a trigger from a specific web app and an action in another web app. You can use Zapier to connect ZeptoMail to different web applications.
Supported Trigger and Action
- Trigger - New Email Activity
Triggers when there is a recipient activity like open, click, bounce on an email you send. You can choose the activity you wish to include in the trigger.
- Action - Send Mail
This action will send an email when triggered.
