Step 1: Select A Trigger

In this step, you need to choose a trigger for your automation. There are two types of automation triggers available:

  1. Scheduler: This trigger enables you to schedule action flows or workflows to be repeated at specific times, such as daily at a particular time, on specific days of every week, monthly, or yearly.

  2. Webhook: This trigger is useful for receiving notifications whenever an event occurs in a third-party service. DronaHQ provides a webhooks REST API that can be registered with an external service to get notified of changes, allowing you to trigger specific actions accordingly.
