The first step is to set up a trigger.


Triggers are events that trigger an automation. All triggers run in real time, that is, data is transferred the moment the event occurs.

  • Choose Facebook.
  • Choose the Ad expenses event.
  • Specify your Facebook connection.

  • Choose the Send a message action.
