Triggers are starting points that are selected by you in a connector that affects your actions. Check out these examples to see how triggers work.

You can use triggers through third-party connectors, as our custom connector doesn’t contain any at this time.


An action happens as a result of a trigger; it’s a response from a triggered event. Check out these examples to see how actions work.

You can use the following actions in the Dotdigital Custom Connector:

  • Create an address book

    Creates a new list in your Dotdigital account.

  • Create a contact

    Creates a new contact in your Dotdigital account.

  • Send an email campaign

    Sends an email campaign to a contact.

  • Create a program enrolment

    You must create a contact in Dotdigital first, then select the Dotdigital ID in the second node.

  • Send a transactional email using a triggered campaign

  • Send an SMS message
