A Bot defines the automation you want AppSheet to run -

"when something happens" (these occurrences are called Events),

"do some set of activities"

(each activity is called a Task and, the set of Tasks is called a Process).

Bots runs in the cloud and do work for you even when you are not directly using an app.

Bots can be configured to trigger a process on detection of a specified event or according to a predetermined schedule. Once enabled, bots run in the background to listen for event triggers or trigger processes on a schedule. To terminate the process automation, you can disable the bot.

In the example shown below, the bot is configured to trigger the “Onboard new employees” process anytime a new “employees” record is created.

This bot continues to listen for the new employee creation events and fire the associated process when the event occurs until it is disabled.
