Zapier is an online automation tool that connects your apps and services, enabling you to automate repetitive tasks without coding or relying on developers to build the integration. It allows you to create forms, webpages, and apps for various purposes such as lead generation, onboarding, and client portals, all without needing to write code.
Zapier's automation is powered by "Zaps", which are automated workflows consisting of a trigger and one or more actions that connect your apps. For example, a new email in your inbox could trigger a Zap that saves the email's attachment to your Dropbox, and then alerts you via Slack about the new Dropbox file.
In terms of AI-enabled features, Zapier has introduced several AI beta features to make automation more intuitive. The AI-powered Zap builder allows you to describe what you want to accomplish, and it will generate a draft Zap for you. The built-in Formatter tool, now with an AI assist, transforms text, numbers, and other data into the format you need for your Zaps.
Zapier's AI-powered troubleshooting provides tailored instructions to fix your Zaps, helping you solve problems quickly and get your critical workflows back online. With the new AI field type in Zapier Tables, you can generate status reports from existing records, estimate priority and risk, draft email responses, and much more.
