Using Push Zaps with Airtable

airtable-mark
Zapier and Airtable work particularly well together for both integrating with other apps, and also automating processes within Airtable. However, there is a type of Zap, called a Push Zap with which many may be unfamiliar.

Zoho Creator Review

Zoho Creator is a tool designed to "build apps that are perfect for your business" and has been around for a while now as part of Zoho Corporation's suite of Apps (which include CRM, Finance, HR, Collaboration, Help Desk etc). Zoho's intention is to become 'the Operating System for Business".
