Steps per Automations

Automations consist of steps. It indicates any action on data, for example: sending data to Google Sheets or sending an SMS message. You can add to your active automation as many steps as your plan allows you.

Each automation has a trigger (event) and at least one action.

Every automation setup starts with specifying the following steps:

What data do you want to get from one app?

When do you want to get it?

What action do you want to perform in another app?


Trigger is an event that starts an automation. Triggers can be linked to a specific event that proceeds in real time in the selected app.

Example: form submission, deal status updating, invoice payment.

Triggers also can be scheduled to start automations at a certain frequency.

Example: downloading expenses from Ad account once a week or receiving stock balances every 5 minutes.


Action is what Albato performs when your trigger occurs. Each completed action is considered as one Albato operation.
