A trigger defines the conditions that start a workflow to create the initial payload. Use Trigger Types to define the conditions that start the workflow.
Manual: A user or another workflow (an external action) initiates a workflow instance.
Polling: The workflow regularly requests new or updated records from an endpoint within one application. See Configure Polling Trigger.
Timing: A new workflow instance starts at a scheduled date and time.
An interval is the amount of time between each polling or timing trigger. A basic interval specifies the minutes when a trigger fires. An advanced interval stipulates the day and time when the trigger starts a workflow instance, for example, Friday at 11:59 p.m.
Webhook: When a workflow uses a webhook, an event in the trigger application starts each instance. The event automatically pushes data into the payload for processing then posting in the connected application. The webhook provides near-real-time updates to the connected application.
