How do I Set Event Based Triggers in Customers App?

Updated on June 13, 2017 11:12PM by Admin

The Event Based Triggers in the Customers App are initiated  when we have to execute an action after the occurrence of a certain event. Here, the trigger can be set for the events like
  • Customer Creation
  • Customer Updation
  • Customer Deletion.
Once a trigger criteria are set, there are three automatic actions that can be triggered:
  • Send Email - An email can be triggered to the Referred By, Assigned To, Customer, Employee or a Team.
  • Update Attribute - Updates a particular attribute value.
  • Update Associated Object Attributes - Updates the attribute values of its associated objects.

Note: More than one action can be added for a trigger.

For instance: Consider an employee (Sharon M. Kaplan), who wants to get notified, by triggering an email to herself, whenever a customer is created with “Sales Rep. = Sharon M. Kaplan".

Steps to Create an Event Based Trigger

  1. Go to Customers App.
  2. Click on “More (...)” icon -> “Settings” -> “Customers” -> “Triggers”.
  3. Select “Event Based” triggers option. Click on “Create”.
