Exactly, you can trigger workflows on HTTP requests, a timer (cron job), email, and a growing list of app-based triggers. For example, you can run a workflow every time someone mentions you in a tweet - check out these examples).

This is so awesome! I am hoping these apps won't sleep like glitch.

Quick question, Is this free, I cannot see the pricing.

So workflows are all event-driven, like AWS Lambda or other serverless functions. They’ll only run when invoked but can run using any of those triggers.

It’s free to run with some limits (see docs here: docs.pipedream.com/pricing/), but I’m happy to raise those limits for you. Paid plans are coming soon and we’ll send a note to users when those arrive - if you signed up, you’re on our email list!

Cool, I created a workflow connecting a webhook to google sheets, playing around with it. It says success when I hit the endpoint it says Success, but data is not saved to sheet. I must be doing something wrong. Thanks for letting me know about pipedream, this seems like a much advanced and better zapier, will definitely be using it more.

Oh sorry to hear that. If it helps, here are two public examples of how you can add a new row to a sheet (I'm using the Add a Row to a Sheet action):

Try copying these workflows, adding your own spreadsheet ID as the value of the Spreadsheet ID param in the add a row action, and press Send Test Event just below the HTTP trigger step. This adds a two-column row with a sample name and title, like in this example sheet.

Happy to also take a look at your workflow and modify to get it working. Feel free to email me anytime at dylan [at] pipedream [dot] com (you probably already got a welcome email from me ;) ).

Thanks for giving it a try Fayaz.
