Trigger Automation block

Dilyara Updated by Dilyara

Trigger automationΒ is a new block made for people that want to integrate Landbot manually with other apps without dealing with the complexity of APIs!

It allows a quicker and simpler way to trigger automations in tools like Zapier, Integromat, IFTTT, and many more πŸ™Œ

You can use it to send information collected by your bots to third-party tools.

Tip: If you want to get the information from third-party apps, you will need to use Webhook block for that.

For more information about the Webhook block please refer to this article.
Note: This block is available for Professional and Business plans.

To create this block, just drag and drop the green dot of the previous block and type "Trigger automation":

For Landbot (Web)

Block anatomy:

The Trigger Automation block is divided into two sections:

As the setup varies depending on the tool you want to connect with, we've prepared a list of detailed examples of how to use this block with different tools, which you can check here.

So, now we'll just take a quick explanation to have a general idea of how this feature works.

  1. Paste the Webhook URL
Warning:Β theΒ URLΒ must be anΒ HTTPS://Β otherwise you will get an error that will not allow you to save changes.

In the above field, we write theΒ URL (endpoint)Β we need to contact the external service.

  1. Set data (variables) to be sent

In this section, we set the data (variables) that we want to send to another app.

We need to manually set some test values for the variables, and these values will be used only to test the request to set up the trigger.
