When you use Zapier to integrate your favorite apps, everything runs in the background--a well-oiled automation machine. But what about those workflows that you think of randomly or want to trigger manually? For example, making a quick invoice or adding a task to a new project?

Zapier's Google Chrome extension and Push app are the easiest way to run those one-off automations.

Push lets you build small, single-purpose workflows that spring into action with a click. It lives in Google Chrome and acts as the leading domino in any process you can dream of.

Just line up the tasks you want to complete (the other dominoes in your chain reaction). Then set things in motion with a push, and watch Zapier topple through those tasks automatically.

What sort of tasks? Push works with the 1,300+ apps that work with Zapier, including MailChimp, Google Sheets, and Trello. And you can program Push to send info to and from any of them. You can do things like:

  • Create tasks in your favorite to-do app
  • Send messages via Slack, email, or SMS
  • Add data to a spreadsheet or form app
  • Look up info in one app and route it to another
  • Set up templated documents and projects

Whether you want to build a zany Rube Goldberg-style machine or just a more convenient way to direct your data, Push delivers true point-and-click simplicity, no code required. Think of it as a universal Chrome extension of sorts.

Ready to experiment with your very own custom Chrome extension? Here are the tools you need to get started:

  1. Install the Push by Zapier Google Chrome Extension

Push Integration Details

Launched on Zapier August 30, 2016

Zapier combines Triggers (like "New Push") and Actions (like "Create Campaign") to complete an action in one app when a trigger occurs in another app. These combos—called "Zaps"—complete your tasks automatically.

The following Push Triggers, Searches, and Actions are supported by Zapier:

New Push

Triggers when you push the button for this Zap in the Zapier Chrome Extension and receives the active tab's title and URL.

New Push With Fields

Triggers when you push the button for this Zap in the Zapier Chrome Extension, and fill out some form fields to send along with the active tab's title and URL.

Use our free platform to build a single Zapier integration and instantly connect your app with 1,500+ others.
