Bots are used to create automations by combining events with processes. 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 “Sync Contacts” process anytime a new “Contact” record is created in Salesforce.
This bot continues to listen for the order creation event and fire the associated process when it event occurs until it is disabled.
