Automation Triggers

Automation Workshop uses Triggers to continuously monitor the system for specified states, processes or changes. When the Trigger detects a predetermined type of event, it launches the Task that automatically executes one or multiple Actions to perform the necessary work.

Free automation triggers (conditions)

Triggers initiate automated processes when an event matches narrower or broader criteria specified in their parameters. Automation Workshop can monitor file system for various changes, execute Tasks on schedule, upon user login & logout event or system start & shutdown. Tasks can also be started manually on user request.
