Zapier Filters and Paths

Filters and Paths are two Actions you can build on a Zap Run, following a Trigger.

A Path is where this gets really interesting! Paths allow you to progress to the next Actions in different ways. Let's say one client submission (for example in a Gravity form) contains the word "Feedback". You could progress this, via a Path, to create a message in Teams. If a different submission contains the words "Request a Call", this could create a new Activity in OpenCRM instead. So, using the same field on a form, when it is submitted, you can determine the outcome most relevant to you. For more details see:
