In Thrive Automator, you are able to create automations that will run whenever an event occurs.

You are able to set up start triggers, that will make the automation begin, and then use filters and actions to make it as complex as you need.

A start trigger is an event and, when it occurs, it will start running the automation. Once you set a start trigger (or multiple ones), you will be able to add actions to the automation, to create different steps that will run in order when the automation starts.

To create complex automations, you will be able to also add filters and conditions (which act as rules - for example: "only execute the automation if this happens") and/or delays in between actions (to wait a certain amount of time before the next action takes place).

This article will go through the available triggers, filters, actions and delays that can be found in Thrive Automator.

Before moving on to the list of available actions and filters, there's one more thing worth mentioning here.

  • Conditions

After you select the start trigger, you can proceed to setting up various conditions for it. In other words, the automation will trigger only if these conditions are met.

The list of available conditions might differ form case to case, depending in the selected trigger:

This is not a mandatory step, but it comes in handy if you are trying to create very specific and targeted automations.

Lastly, if you don't want to use conditions, you can skip this step and add filters, at a later stage in the workflow. We've detailed the filtering options further along in this article.
