Mention is a monitoring tool that helps businesses monitor social media and the web. Any event within Mention can be set as a trigger for your workflow. Now whenever the specified event happens, the associated workflow will run automatically.
To set any Mention event as trigger, you first need to switch on the trigger toggle button located near the ‘Start’ icon in your workflow. Then, from the list of triggers under ‘All Triggers’ on the right, drag and drop Mention in to the given box.
Once you are done with this, select any event of your choice that you wish to set as trigger from the ‘Select Trigger’ dropdown options. Let us have a look at the various Mention events that you can set as triggers.
