When creating a Zapier integration, you can either:

  • Run extractions in Sensible and then act on the data with a Sensible trigger.
  • Trigger extractions automatically outside of Sensible, then act on the data with a Sensible action.

Sensible trigger

Every time you run an extraction using the Sensible app or API, you can automatically send the data to a destination, for example an email or database, using a Sensible trigger:

Sensible action

You can bypass the Sensible app or API and instead trigger Sensible extractions with file actions in Google drive, email, or other supported Zapier apps. Then send the extraction to the destination of your choice with a Sensible action.
