In any Automation, there are three major elements.
Automation is executed when its event has occurred. An event can be anything. For example, receiving an incoming direct message is an event.
For automation, you can set a number of actions that will be executed when your Automation event has occurred. The availability of actions also depends on the type of event that you use.
