A trigger is an event that kick starts the workflow. For example, if you want to send an SMS whenever you receive a new e-mail, the trigger event will be a “new e-mail received”. The trigger will be the first step in the workflow. Every workflow will have a single trigger. Every time the trigger event occurs, the workflow will start running and the actions will be executed in a predefined manner.
There are two types of triggers:
Polling trigger: The FlowGat will check for new data from your trigger after regular intervals to initiate a workflow depending on the pricing plan you choose.
Instant triggers: With an instant trigger, the trigger application will notify the FlowGat about the new changes or new data.

In the workflow plan designer, choose the application where you want the trigger event to take place.
