Triggers act as the starting point for automation, and when the specified condition or event occurs, it prompts the system to execute a series of actions or tasks automatically.

For example, in the context of an email automation workflow, a trigger could be the receipt of a new email. When a new email is received, it serves as the trigger, and the automation platform then performs predefined actions, such as sending a reply, adding the email sender to a mailing list, or creating a task in a project management tool.

Triggers are essential because they enable automation systems to respond to real-world events or changes in data, reducing the need for manual intervention and streamlining processes. They allow businesses and individuals to create more efficient workflows, save time, and increase productivity by automating repetitive tasks.
