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.

Where can I find all available triggers and actions?

Check this page where you can find all available triggers and actions from all our add-ons.

Where can I find documentation about AutomatorWP?

Check the official documentation where you can start getting familiarized with AutomatorWP.

Can AutomatorWP connect plugins with external services like Zapier?

Yes, is completely possible thanks to the Webhooks add-on that lets you connect all your plugins with external applications, web services or even others WordPress sites.

Can AutomatorWP connect plugins from different sites?

Yes, with the Webhooks add-on you connect your plugins from a site to the plugins from another site.

You can create brand new automations between different sites like:
When user purchases a WooCommerce product on Site A, Enroll in a LearnDash course on Site B.
When user publishes a post of a specific category on Site A, Clone this post on Site B.

What if I deactivate or remove a plugin that includes new triggers and actions?

The most recommended is remove first all triggers and actions from this plugin in order to ensure the correct workflow of AutomatorWP, because automations with triggers from this plugin can no longer be completed.

Will AutomatorWP slow down my website?

This depends heavily on how you use AutomatorWP.

You shouldn’t notice any performance impact while using AutomatorWP but, if you have dozens of automations, thousands of users, and your automations are configured with many triggers and actions, then yes, there could be a performance hit.

Try to configure automations only for real needs, for example, we discourage using AutomatorWP as an analytics tool (setting up automations to track page visits).

Is AutomatorWP compatible with any theme?

Yes, AutomatorWP doesn’t includes any frontend feature, everything is configure at the WordPress backend, so AutomatorWP doesn’t requires compatibility with any theme.

Can AutomatorWP be easily translated?

Yes, AutomatorWP is stored in the official WordPress plugins repository where you (and anyone) are able to submit your own translations.

Do you offer custom development services?

No, We’re unable to provide custom development services, as our focus is developing the core AutomatorWP plugin, and the official AutomatorWP add-ons.

Funciona de maravilla, te hace ahorrar tiempo. Merecidas las 5 estrellas, 100% recomendable.

Falla el envío de correo cuando automatizas la creación de un usuario. Envía el correo al usuario sin usuario y sin password. Cuando envías el link de restablecimiento de contraseña y tienes configurado el mulliste envía un vínculo al sitio raíz.

The plugin is pretty useful, it ties all other plugins together and facilitate the exchange of information between them. The fact that one could be in direct communication with Ruben, the main developer, via some facebook group is nice. But I was impressed with the quality and speed of their Support team. Within hours my issue/missing feature was solved with custom code, and worked perfectly. 5 stars!

While I would have given this plugin a 5 star review just on it's functionality and quality I had an even better experience with their support. I had a particular use case and while the ability to do what I needed was not out of the box the founder reached out to me after seeing my posts in a Facebook group and within 1 business day helped me find a solution and added functionality to the plugin. The atmosphere and willingness to listen to those of us who use the plugin was what sold me. We purchased an all access pass to the addons to aid us in the building on the coaching and educational sites for our clients. I totally recommend this plugin! It will making life easier for yourself and reducing the manual input for your end users. Way to do AutomatorWP team!

Very good options to automate. Definitely very nice for somebody who is not able to make a piece of code for himself (like me) 🙂 The support is super-fast (usually within 24 hours I have got the complete answer). I had an experience that within 2 hours there was an update issued that brought the options that I have suggested!
