With the Automation builder you can replace human resources by mapping out a standardized workflow to save time, remove tedious, repetitive tasks, and increase you efficiency, while also minimizing the risk of human errors.

A basic Automation workflow starts with an event that triggers a single or a series of actions. The automated workflow identifies actions outside of Contractbook, ie. an updated opportunity in Salesforce, which then triggers an action in Contractbook, such as a contract drafted.

What is a trigger?

As mentioned, an automated workflow starts with a trigger - then When incident. The trigger initiates the following actions and can be a number of things:

  • An updated sales opportunity
  • A fully signed contract
  • Any edits to a draft relating to a specific sales opportunity

What is an action?

The action(s) is what you want to happen automatically based on a specific event (trigger) - the Then incident. The idea is to make it unnecessary for you to do the specific action yourself and rather have it happen automatically. Examples of actions could be:

  • Create a (contract) draft
  • Update sales opportunity
  • Send Slack update message
  • Create reminder task

You can create as many automations as you want with out Foundation plan. Make sure to get on the Automation builder journey to decrease time spent on tedious tasks and minimize the risk of error, while maintaining strong data insights in everything you do.
