    • 7. How does it work?• Some channels can either be used as a trigger or a response• Some channels can only be used as a trigger or a response• Different channels use different criteria as triggers/responses – you define the criteria• Recipes are automatically & regularly checked to see if they need to be run• The same trigger can be used for different recipes• You can share your recipes with others
