Zapier lets you connect Method to 2,000+ other web services. Automated connections called Zaps, set up in minutes with no coding, can automate your day-to-day tasks and build workflows between apps that otherwise wouldn't be possible.
Each Zap has one app as the Trigger, where your information comes from and which causes one or more Actions in other apps, where your data gets sent automatically.

How does Zapier Work?
Zapier allows you to set up tasks, or “zaps”. A zap can, for example, automatically create an Outlook calendar entry whenever an activity is created in Method.
Zapier works on a trigger event → action structure. In other words, Zapier waits until a specific event happens and that event triggers an action (or more than one) to execute (like sending an email in Outlook).
In the below example, the event that happens is the creation of a new activity in Method. This is the trigger which causes the action of sending an email in Outlook.
Method can be used either as the trigger or the action. In other words:
When an event happens in Method, this triggers an action to be done in a 3rd party app. In other words, Method is the trigger which tells the 3rd party app to do an action.
When an event happens in a 3rd party app, this triggers an action to be done in Method. In other words, the 3rd party app is the trigger which tells Method to do an action.
Method as the Trigger
In Zapier, you can create a zap which is triggered by Method. Here are the ways Method can trigger a zap:
When a New Contact is added.
When a New Lead, Customer, or Vendor is added.
When a New Activity is added.
When a New Opportunity is added.
After Method triggers the zap, another app will do an action. For example, you could have a Zapier send an email out in Gmail when a new lead is created in Method.

Method as an Action
You can create a zap triggered by another app, and have Method perform an action. Here are the things you can do in Method:
Search Method: You can have Method find a specific Contact, Lead, Customer, and Vendor. Normally, this is done to grab the Record ID to use later in another action.
Add a Customer, Lead, or Vendor.
Add a new Activity. Requires a contact.
Add a new Opportunity. Requires a contact.
Add directly into a custom table.
