What does automation, trigger and action means?

Automations are the basic building block of AutomatorWP and they have 2 main parts: triggers and actions.

Triggers are the part that determines when an automation will run a perform it’s actions. Triggers are known as “When this happens”.

Actions are the part that determines what an automation will perform after all it’s triggers gets completed. Actions are known as “Do this”.

You can setup an automation like this:
Trigger: When user visits a post.
Action: Send email to the user.

Brilliant idea for a Plugin, if the Trigger & Action you need is there; would be better if it supported Custom Actions, even Custom Triggers ...
23, Febreru de 2024
I found this plugin confusing to set up and not especially intuitive. I don't love the fact that everything has to be done in an additional step, instead of all at once. And honestly the way that it works just doesn't fit my mental model, based on all the other automation solutions I've used. What really did it for me, was the fact that I bought the FluentCRM add-on, only to find that it didn't have the ability to handle my FluentCRM custom fields, and there was no way to know this before purchasing. I wrote to support and got a message the next day saying that they'd "released an update" that added this functionality. Why now all of a sudden? Why wasn't that included in the add-on to begin with? Why did I have to ask for functionality I assumed would be included in a paid add-on (due to lack of other information) for it to be suddenly added? And now, because technically support has resolved my issue, I'm no longer entitled to a refund according to their terms, which makes their "14 day refund" offer pretty hollow. I don't appreciate having to spend money to find out whether a plugin can do what I need, with no way of getting my money back after the fact. I get that the explanation is about people abusing the system, but subjecting genuine customers to the same attitudes leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I just don't like the way they do business, sorry. I've already found a much better alternative.

Having done a bunch of development in my time connecting services can be a pain - it can be done but why when AutomatorWP can just do it for you so much faster and will make sure that it stays current with the hooks and filters of other plugins. Don't waste your time reading the docs of multiple plugins to get them to work together - it's worth the investment....just use this plugin and your headaches will go away.
