Automations are the basic building block of AutomatorWP and they have 2 main parts: triggers and actions.

Triggers are the part that determines when an automation will run a perform it’s actions. Triggers are known as “When this happens”.

Actions are the part that determines what an automation will perform after all it’s triggers gets completed. Actions are known as “Do this”.

Automatorwp is so useful in automating important tasks. It has so many addons that accomodates many other different plugins. My favourite is Schedule Actions that allows me to schedule all kinds of tasks to run at specific time, intervals and triggers various actions.

The Support is very fast and very helpful.The Plugin is great, we do a lot of automations with that, which makes our live easier 🙂

There is no user registration trigger, nor can I find and use ANY of the free version triggers for addons. The free version is pretty much useless. Was very interested in purchasing this and wanted to try it out to see how well it would work but I have wasted so much time just searching through the limited options and documentation to no avail.

I added this plugin to my LearnDash site and I am blown away by the functionality. It is incredibly useful for automating all sorts of student experiences. Highly, highly recommended. LearnDash has some sort of Zaiper add on that comes with a hefty monthly fee. From what I can see, this plugin solves all those challenges and more in a much more efficient and elegant solution. The LearnDash team really needs to reach out to these guys asap!

It is a really great piece of software with even better and super-prompt support at a very affordable price. If you point to something that you may wish for or need, the team will immediately consider it and let you know what they think. In this way they progressively improve the software. I am engaged in a quite complex educational project and having access to the support team has been incredible. I am just sorry for sending so many messages (my project requires it) but each of them has been answered quickly and helpfully. Please continue to develop the software as you are and keep the same spirit in place.
